They are a bit of work to take care of.. or so my brother told me. You might get eggs though.

 Have you really set out SEVERAL containers with vegetable oil. When I do they fill up with earwigs.
Plus when it's a bad year I go out at night they are all over my porch and walls and my sliding glass door and spray them one at a time with ammonia or Awesome orange.

I always had problems with snails in my strawberries until last year when they are growing in a a metal watering trough I don't have them.
Snails will crawl in to anything with beer and drown.
Obviously not enough.  Right?
I guess so. Put out more traps and do it early. The more you kill the less eggs they lay. So if you kill enough in one year you shouldn't have as may the next year.

Yes...that's a consideration.  I was thinking of having a pen for it and then just setting it loose at different times.

I think Loews has it and also Walmart. I bought something like this stuff years ago and I scattered some on the pavers by our door. I was surprised to see a whole bunch of dead flies all over the ground where I spread that stuff
