I have been known to round up a load of big snails and put them in the middle of the lawn with some bird food to attract the thrushes. Or I stamp on them.
I can't do stamping. I can't bear the crunch noise
Seems like most of us don't get on with our neighbours. Mine go over the fence into the churchyard. Not had any complaints yet!
You tell such lovely stories Mike
to paraphrase Nick Lowe ( showing my age here ) " I love the sound of breaking shells" Rubber gloves , snail in the bottom of a bucket: CRUNCH !!
Slugs get the chop and I dont throw snails, I HURL them!
Builders yard next door. Bit of height that ends with a fatal sounding crunch.
I'm not guilty, don't have neighbours! But any snail I find is quickly trodden on. Especially the 5 caught eating my new clematis.
Maybe we should print this out and put it somewhere the snails can read it http://www.campaignforrealfarming.org/2012/01/mendip-wallfish-snails/ think that'd make them hot foot it to another garden!
I went past a restaurant the other day which had English Snails on the menu!!!
If they're going to come 'home' anyway what's the harm? We all love going on holiday don't we and air travel adds to the excitement.
