I have a dozen mounted species and I have found at least three of them have bush snails. How do I treat them?
diatomaceous earth should help chase them away, but treat them all so they don't just move to the next one. you can also place pie-pans of beer on the ground near where they are. they will have one last party.
Just make sure the beer is deep enough to drown the snails.
Another trick I learned is to staple around a sand paper on the wire and it would prevent the snails to crawl over the sand paper. I presume your mounts are suspended.
