They just do that, unfortunately. I use a sponge with a scrubby side to clean my walls, and that usually helps. Also, over time, fish will pick at them, and they'll come off. It used to bother me when it first happened, but I don't notice it much anymore.

If your LFS allows exchanges ,exchange your snail for a male one

There is no definitive way, so just go to the store and keep trading snails till you find a snail which doesn’t give eggs

Ah, well, i guess you fall into the fun fish keeper group of "i like nature except when it actually happens" club. Don't worry, that group is large, lol!
