Pineapple express just poured all night. Mild temps- but not much to do out there in the mushy grounds.
I haven't had to bait..but I think that now is the time. Snails must be ready to explode.

The snails haven't been a problems at all this winter. I'm putting out a lot of egg shells. It appears to be helping.

Winter is not done here, yet. lol! We haven't gotten a lot of rain, so snails are not too active. When we did get the rains a few weeks back there were a few around; however, not as many as usual. I think it's due to the crushed eggshells. YAY! :>))

No the snails seem to multyply if it rains a lot thats the down side of damp and rain here to. Glad you dod nt get to many snails when you got the rains a few weeks back. Yes the egg shells do deter then .
