One of the best is the two brick method.... Put the snail on one......
Get the picture?

But, go to your pool store and get diotomateous earth and spread it
around.... If it rains, you will have to do it again.... but, it works.
Fairchild did it and was very happy with the results....

I suggest you use Dead Line granules. It is an expensive product but well
worth the price.

Aren't these snails edible ? Over here we love snails and we have an
ecological way to protect
plants from snails. At your cookbooks !

Yes, well, I guess I prefer my escargot in other people's gardens!

I've often wondered the same about the common garden slug. Not very big,
but no shell to bother with. Never had guts enough to try, altho I've
never heard that they're poisonous either. And with enough garlic butter...

Active ingredient in Dead Line Granules is Methaldehyde. We use it here
because it stands up very well to rainy conditions.
