At times like this I wish I had chickens, or ducks!
...they walk up the strips and goo into the pan with the beer
There , they soon drown
dont worry, their screams are rather high pitched so they shouldnt bother you if you keep windows open.
Im here to help, its what I do.
But, I have to admit, the thought of a little duck waddling around & feasting on snails is very appealing.

I wish I had ostriches!!!
I usually just sink old margarine tubs into the ground. Then I fill them with beer. It serves two purposes. 1. Effectively kills the slugs -- the following morning the slimy miscreants will be floating on the surface, little satisfied slug smiles etched on their faces. 2.) When I'm crawling home from the bar, and I pass one of those margarine tubs, I'll lay down on the cool grass and slurp up the contents, slugs and all.

I think I have a solution. Get a dark-colored duck. Sever its vocal chords. Then, hide him in the basement during the day. At night, release the duck. It will be like a small snail-eating shadow, drifting quietly around the yard, gobbling up snails like popcorn. And the neighbors will never know.
msolga. If I find out that you have been GIVING Redback beer away for FREE to snails, you are in so much trouble!!!
