I used alum on my plants. Killed everything including a baby shrimplet even tho I shook the plants. I ended up with just one snail left over from the plants. My boyfriend ended up with none. Just use 3 tablespoons per gallon. Soak for 2 to 3 hours and all snails plus eggs will be gone. Way better than bleach. I tried that and a week later I had no plants left.
