We often have snails munching on our mail. I don’t mind it so much when it’s junk mail, but when it’s important things like registration, insurance or bills, it becomes a slight inconvenience. I don’t think the excuse “Oh, I didn’t pay this quarter because a snail ate my electricity bill” is a good enough for the power company.
So even though I don’t like it, snail baiting around the letter box seems to be the best solution. This poor little guy is well and truly gone, but at least I can still read my mail.
