Snails getting out of hand

Snails getting out of hand?
One solution is to lay down grit – many gritty substances make effective snail repellents. Gritty substances will prevent them from crossing over the barrier to get to the plants. Crushed eggshells, sand or diatomaceous earth sprinkled around plants that the garden snails seem to prefer will deter and eventually kill these pests. Rooibos mulch is also now available at selected nurseries to create a physical barrier.
