I knew someone who kept ordinary snails as pets in an aquarium. She was really knowledgeable about them. I don't think they do as much damage as slugs so I leave snails alone, and it admire their beautiful shells. A few I throw into the neighbours, not gardeners.
years ago I saw an old codger being interviewed on Gardeners World, who resolutely killed worms. Too messy, dirty whatever. His garden would have hurt your eyes, it looked like it was painted on. Total and utter control. Hope he didn't have a wife.
