too many snowdrops, thousands everywhere
There are too many snowdrops, thousands are everywhere. Before the old chap moved next door he went nuts planting snowdrop bulbs. Now they are everywhere in my front garden. Is there any way of getting rid of them other than by hand?

Your snowdrops will multiply by offsets. You will need to dig them up in order to remove them from your yard.
Bulbs generally would be planted about 5" below the soil surface. A small sharp hand trowel would be helpful and probably the least damaging to your yard. The bulbs can be shaken off and the soil filled back into the hole.
Perhaps you could share the bulbs with a gardening friend or neighbor. You may even want to search out a local garden club. Maybe they would come help you remove them!
