I wandered outside this morning and found a dozen or so snails trailing over the tops of plants. I stomped those and spread more snail bait. These gorgeous spring mornings are as welcome to the snails as they are to us! : ) I use safer snail bait, the iron phosphate stuff, primarily because with all my allergy and coughing the last thing I want is poison dust in my lungs. Another benefit is the snails do not die immediately so you do not get gross piles of dead snails as you do with the other snail poison.
