Re: Snails

       Here in my garden I use eggshells. I just save them into a bucket, then have a handy 11 year old boy stomp in the bucket for a few minutes. The shards are quite sharp, and the snails avoid all contact. When handpicking, I keep an old copper pot in the yard for the unlucky slimeys.... death by electrocution!
