Disposal of snails eggs

I have just discovered loads of tapioca type little balls.  Guess they are snails eggs.  How do I get rid of them?  Would leaving the pot in this lovely sun dry them up?  Help please!

    Sling them out for the birds, they'll either die in the sun or the birds will eat them first

    If you throw them in the pond, fish will eat them. If not, squash under a foot on a hard surface.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Be sure they're not Osmacote granules first!
  • Thanks for the help.  As they were in a pot I took out the plant and emptied the soil onto some newsaper and spread it out in the sun.  The eggs went hard like little beads  I then spread the soil on the main flowed.  They went quite deep down into the soil in the pot or I would have scooped the top bit up and put them on the bird table.  Thanks again.
