Yes, I do and hence I asked the question?

I wouldnt mind the big snails as per the picture, however I have hundreds of these tiny different shaped ones and they eat all my vegetables and herbs.

Each morning I go out and pick them off but each morning there are always more!

I hate what they do to the lovely vegetables I am trying to grow.

In Melbourne we would get literally THOUSANDS of snails,but here in North Queensland I have never seen a single one in 35 years!! But we do get grasshoppers which do the same damage!
I don't have a garden so I don't have a snail problem

Oh yes indeed and way to many. The little blighters eat my bulbs as they emerge from the ground. The flowers never get a cjhance.
I have to be very honest and say I have not seen a snail in maybe 2 yrs!!!

Which makes me wonder why?

Can't be normal, to not see them.
No. No sails at the moment.

We have a garden, but we hardly have any snails.
When I see them in a friends garden, I take them off her plants for her, & squash them underfoot.
My friend can’t make her self do that. Next time I find them at home, I’ll put them in a jar & take them down to river & throw them in, for the fish to eat.
We found some really large ones, at the 2 places we stayed at in Bali a couple of weeks ago. I moved them off the footpath & put them into the garden. When my husband mentioned the snails to the owner of 1 of the places we were staying at, he said they eat them!

PS: If you don't like squashing them underfoot, put some sea/table salt into a tin your going to be recycling, & put the snails into the tin. Hey Presto, they'll be dead in seconds! Then tip into a plastic bag from a bread loaf & place in the garbage bin!
