    Apply food grade diatomaceous earth to the soil and spray the plants with horticultural oil.

    bury a bowl near the plants even with the surface of the soil and fill with 1.5"-2" of beer. The snails are attracted to the smell of the yeast in the beer and crawl into the bowl and drown. You can use cheap beer. If you water with a sprinkler then you must replenish the beer after watering.

    Crush egg shells and put them around each plant. The sharp edges will damage the bellies of the little beasties and they will die. Works great if you have slugs as well.

    I agree with the egg shells. They do work. Don't leave the pieces too big. Make sure you get all of them off the tomato plants or they will keep noshing on your plants.
