Answer: If is the beginning of a dry season in Israel, I wouldn't worry about the snails. They need moisture to thrive and should not cause problems in your garden. If it stays wet, then you might consider spreading crushed egg shells and sharp sand around the plants to prevent them from crawling to them. The ants may be a problem depending on the type of ants. You can spread boric acid around the mound to try to kill them or break it up with a shovel, but I'd check first with an Agricultural agent about the type of ants and whether this is dangerous.
