"Snails and slugs don't like pine needles."
So if I mulch with pine needles, I never need to worry about snails and slugs again! Right?
PS - Thought about creating a new topic for this one, but I figured, we've already got most of the pine needle conoisseurs following this thread right now, so just tag it on the end. Anyone who has more to say about ways to collect them please feel free to ignore me and respond on that subject, which is, after all, what the thread is supposed to be about.
