Snail nuisance

I have a minor nuisance issue. My snails are making their way into my overflow box and into the overflow siphon tube. Does anyone know of a easy DIY fix for this? I was considering some type of box cover but don't want to reduce the functionality of the overflow box. Any suggestions are welcome.
Thank you in advance.

you can go to the crafts store and get some netting or eggcrate (light diffusing material) from home depot and place it on top.
