I would be more concerned with them climbing out of the trashcan. I've had an MTS do that once.
I mean honestly, squish it or flush it. Maybe it'll have a chance to live in the sewer or something. How hard is it to squish your fingers together while walking to the can.For some reason, I really don't like ramshorn snails. I have a couple in my tanks, and any time I see a baby ramshorn, I'll just pick it out of the tank and throw it in a trashcan. Honestly, just because I'm too lazy to squeeze/kill them. I can't bring myself to get rid of the adults (I only have like 2 bigger sized ones). For some reason, I'm not bothered as much by the MTS I have, maybe because they stay in the sand during the day?
Is throwing them in the trash inhumane? What do you guys do?

Because suggesting a way to give a creature a chance to live and having an argument on invasive species has anything to do with each other lol? .. Yeah, no. The question was about being humane, not whether setting an invasive species free is legal or not. I stated an opinion in regards to his original question. Picking up the snail, throwing it in the trash live because he "cant be bothered" to squish them is, in my opinion, like putting a piece of trash next to a trash can because you can't bothered to open the lid.Calling something you think is immoral or dumb "retarded" isn't cool.
Flushing it is also not cool. Invasive species are no joke. As someone from Florida I'm surprised you don't know more about this.
Squish the little buggers. I do it in the tank as they make good food for the other inhabitants.
