    Yes, more over the fence onto a garden path that runs along the back.. found a pesky one that was causing damage in my greenhouse this week! My father in law is terrible, he made himself a catapult especially for the snails in his garden (he has thousands) and flings em away with that. They go miles....

  • No snails where we are but daughter has loads or rather the field beyond does,  they all finish up there,....maybe that's where they came from in the first place, she's just rehoming them! image

    They need to go at least 100 yards away otherwise they come home again.  The BBC's Amateur Scientist of the Year a year or two back did the experiment.

    No, I just chuck them down the paddock.  Although I will admit to 'returning' cat poo.  After all, they feed and water and tend for the wretched cat, only fair that they should reap the harvest.

    I was always told that ifnyou throw a snail out of your garden it will finds it way back there eventually. So possibly a waste of time tossing them over your neighboursimageimageimage
