The munching does sound like a snail. Bush snails aren't attracted to snail bait. You can water the whole thing with coffee. Caffeine will kill them.

I'm weird - I'd be happy recieving it in a thin, cheap plastic bag and putting it into my own jar. But then I buy fertilizer in 50# plastic bags at an ag supply store.
