Anyone have an eco friendly way to eradicate snails from the yard? Every time it rains I have literally hundreds crawling up my house and just noticed them on my mailbox and a couple of my trees as well. Starting to re do my flower beds and don't want these pests killing anything I put in there.

I like snails.

I'm worried that the New Guinea Flatworm invasion is going to wipe them out.

I found a bunch of many-lined tree snails on Samson Island last month.

And rain? What rain? It doesn't rain around here any more

Lubbers are the bain of my gardening existence right now. Trying to grow a bunch of lupine from seed and they eat it faster than it grows. Also ate an entire clivia last year.

Garlic butter should be a good solution. Shouldn't this post be under "Food"?
