    I've got a strange image in my brain now of whack-a-mole but with snails!

    In my defence I had expected slugs, it was dark and the teething 9 month old was about to waken! The snails also may have giggled at me when I tried to cut them in two in a sleep deprived attempt at logic... after all, they are half slug!?

    (Should this go on that other thread?)

    I tried snipping a slug and decided that was even more disgusting than squishing them. Bashing 'em with a trowel on a stone works best for me so far. I don't like the way they squash underfoot, bleurgh.

    Snails get rehomed far far away in the woods generally. I have a bit of a soft spot for snails. (does that make me odd too? )

    Its OK, eirish, I know you are one of the few here who understand me Sorry!!!
    I'd rehome all the slugs and snails if I could think of somewhere where they could live out their lives peacefully - that is without me shouting at them when they've eaten all my cucurbits - but lets not go there!
    They must have a role to play in our gardens and stomping and snipping them seems so ungrateful somehow.
