An alternative to "Death By Osmosis":

My dad announced that he'd bought some new elastic for his catapult.
What do you (being over 60) use your catapult for?
Firing snails out of the garden.
Right... And how far do you fire them?
45o over the house across the street.
Right...

I did suggest he tag them with Tippex to make sure they weren't coming back...
Still it's a new method of garden pest-control to me

I generally give garden snails a crash course in Darwinian evolution - hoik them over the wall into the road, the fastest ones will make it back alive. I'd be inclined to combine the instructable and the catapult - make bright-coloured snails pop up in the posh houses' garden in the next street.
