You Can't Unsee This!

by Kristen Flowers

Escar-go away! That’s what south Florida residents are saying to the giant African land snails currently infesting their neighborhoods.  The invasive mollusks can grow to be as big as rats and are able to chew through plaster and stucco, causing damage to homes and yards.  They’re not just gross- they’re also dangerous, since they can carry a lungworm that causes illness in humans.  

Have you ever had a pest problem? What kind of infestation did you have? What did you do about it?
