    If you have snails in your area you can usually find them at night under pieces of rotten wood, boards that have laid on the ground, under piles of thick leaves or any sticks that have stayed in the same place all winter. They only come out at night so get a flashlight. You may not have snails. When I lived in Illinois, we had slugs but no snails. Here in Michigan, I have plenty of both. Also turn over rocks that have been in the same place for a long time.
