Giant African Snail?

Postby j.o.e » August 5th, 2022, 11:07 am

Bait working for now …. I really don’t want too much intimate interactions with dem stink ting. They pop and squeal with salt too but I don’t want dry spots on the lawn.

Allyuh does pick dem up and discard the shells after using the thinners?

I like that the bait gathers them into one place
And I use pigtail buckets and put the bait in the back of it so it's just to lift up the bucket and empty it into the hole I burn the shells in

I noticed this recent set by me has really soft shells
We have a "yard tongs" to pick them up and all of this recent set had a crunch when u squeeze them
So i feel they have a calcium deficiency

Hoping this makes them more vulnerable

I want something to grab them from the ground. I have one of those garbage grabbers but that doesn't grip them properly

Just now yuh hadda build concrete wall to stop snails from coming in.

They will still come tru the gate and drains tho.

Duck could be getting rat lungworm meningitis. These snails are deadly and not a joke. People who ignoring it and not checking the spread on their own property not realizing that they are contributing to some invasive species eco-disaster in the long run, all of us have to be involved in this.

The snail itself is quite destructive because it multiplies exponentially in such a short time, and it destroys a lot of plants in its way. Snails will climb up the trees and suck the sap and damage and eventually kill the plants, they eat through softer shrub-type plants like nothing, they're also scavengers eating anything rotten.

The 2nd problem is that food stuff that is not usually cooked to a high temperature can contain the parasite A. cantonensis from snail sheit. They could have laid eggs too in produce. When the parasite get inside a host, they rapidly migrate to the Central Nervous System, including the brain. Not to mention curious pets and other animals that looking for an easy food source.

Risk factors for infection with A. cantonensis include the ingestion of raw or undercooked infected snails or slugs; or pieces of snails and slugs accidentally chopped up in vegetables, vegetable juices, or salads; or foods contaminated by the slime of infected snails or slugs. It is possible that ingestion of raw or undercooked transport hosts (freshwater shrimp, land crabs, frogs, etc. ) can result in human infection, though this is less certain. In addition, contamination of the hands during the preparation of uncooked infected snails or slugs could lead to ingestion of the parasite.

The ministry of agriculture representative who came by was very helpful. We got to chatting and he agreed that stuff coming in supposed to go through a quarantine. The stuff the venes bringing in will be a source.of problems yet to be seen but is definite to happen. Clorox, and salt in a storm bin filled with water. Them snails deading
