I've been collecting the snails nightly and bunging them inside the compost bin, Its 3/4 full and I don't think they can get out of the bottom, the lid has a lip and although slugs can squeeze through I don't think the snails can. I think they might cook inside of it though. However, each night there are more to collect - I can still see the other snails in the compost bin whenever I chuck more in.
They've killed several delphiniums and are steadily decimating some chilli plants, several lupins. hostas and a clematis (which they've stopped from ever really getting off the ground. I utterly hate them and am afraid of the depths to which I may yet sink. Perhaps I'll try those wool pellets.
