It’s raining snails and slugs

Hi Gary: So I know the Chinese have different animals that represent different years, could Californians make 2006 the year of the snail and slug? My method of snail and slug control is to first keep damp hiding places to a minimum and then hand pick. A little gross and slimy but it works, well I have picked each morning for a week, and I was feeling like there were no less each day (usually hand picking can work real well). So today I counted in the back yard (standard city lot in Dublin — no open space!) in 5 minutes, 42 snails and slugs. I am beginning to think that it is not raining water but raining snails and slugs … (Kim, Dublin, CA)
