    I noticed a lot of snails around my yard and several of my pepper leaves been eaten. I think it is snails. Is there a remedy for snails that is pet safe?

    I would suggest a saucer of beer. They snails love it and die while singing old camp songs. If the dogs find it no harm. Well unless like my old dog and they develop a taste for it. Then they will tear out carpet if you spill some. Really became a problem. I think they even still make a ceramic snail/slug trap you bait with beer.

    My grandma always used crushed eggshells around sensitive plants. Seemed to work well too.
