Does anyone know how to get rid of garden snails? I've bought all of the over the counter remedies sold by garden centers, I've tried the beer trick. Yet, I can still go out and literally pick up a coffee can full of snails every night. I live in South Texas, so this is a year round problem.

Throw salt everywhere that the snails are; you'll find that soon, they'll all be gone!

Buy snail bait from Costco, Home depot, or from Garden stores.

They're out in the morning, or after it rains. Just check every now and then, and smash them on the ground with your shoe. Don't throw them into your neighbors yard, because they have an internal home beacon and will always find their way back. Also don't throw them in the trash because they'll just climb out. I know killing them sucks. I used to feel guilty, but it was either them or my kale, brocolli, and my other vegetables.

The best thing I've ever used are decollate snails. They actually feed on brown snails. Unfortunately the only states allowing the release of Decollate snails are: California (selected counties only), Arizona (any county), New Mexico (any county), and Texas (any county).
In California, California's State Fish and Game Commission authorizes Decollate use in ONLY the following California counties: Fresno, Imperial, Kern, Los Angeles, Madera, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Tulare, and Ventura.
You can purchase them at garden centers. I've placed them around my garden and I seriously have not had any snails for the past 3 years.

Beer in the cup works very are collecting them on a regular basis. You might try adding a few more cups in the garden. If you have box turtles in your yard, they love snalls. I had a small problem with snails one year, and before I could do anything about it, I had a turtle show up. He stayed in the area for 3 days. No more snails.

My Mother always used beer but in a Tupperware lid, something low enuff for them to get in, they don't try to crawl back out. It has something to do w/ the yeast in the beer cuz I think I read something about using Brewer's yeast when I started having a problem w/ them.
