As far as the snails go, you can harvest them, give them a week in a contained box eating organic cornmeal, and enjoy them in your favorite escargot recipe. My brother did and they were delicious!

i have recently read that the edta in Sluggo makes it toxic to wildlife/pets. If you have chickens or toads or other slug eating critters wouldn’t they be at risk when you use sluggo?

I see in another 2015 discussion about slugs/snails a comment by suzanne from peaceful valley saying “I have not found any information regarding secondary effects of Sluggo.” However in this past hour i have done a simple google search and found multiple sources discussing this very topic. Because you appear to be committed to organic gardening you might like to have more information? Here is a link to one source. http://www.cloudforest.com/cafe/gardening/warning-sluggo-toxic-for-people-and-wildlife-t3846.html
You should know that i am not entirely adverse to using toxic substances wisely, but using them wisely means being educated about the risks.
