Here is my snail trap in use.
It needed a few holes drilled in it so it sinks quicker and I used waxed 
thread with a piece of plant weight so it sinks better and I can put it 
in and out without getting my arm wet. The plastic sinks but its a touch 
too buoyant.
If I had designed it I would have also made the base black. Snails seem 
to like dark surfaces.

After 1 hour.

After 6 hours - Zillions of MTS!
