Where do snails go in summer?

Question

Where do all the snails go in the summer? When it’s rainy and wet and Autumn time we see loads of snails but when it’s hot there are no snails in sight. Where do they go?

Answer

They hide! The snails need to maintain moisture on their skin at all times so in the hot, dry weather they don't want to be losing all that moisture. Also, in the light of day they're very exposed to predators. They tend to hideaway. If you lift up a few rocks or big plant pots in your garden you'll probably find them there.
