Cut a lengthwise slice of zucchini and nuke it in the microwave for about 15 seconds, then, when it cools down, plant it in the substrate (you might have to use something to hold it down) just before lights out. When you come back the next morning, I guarantee you'll find it covered in snails. Then you can take it out and toss it.
Other means are loaches and (I think) pea puffers, and assassin snails.
