That is a little disturbing but the manufacturer assures us that the product is "safe to pets and wildlife." It is also officially an organic product.
OK. Here is where my deep-seated skepticism shows up:
1) I almost don't care what
the manufacturer says. The only interest said mfr generally has is separating me from my money. Ever since the [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=134667]Checkmate brouhaha[/url] and [url=https://www.lbamspray.com/Health.htm]near-poisoning[/url] by our own state government (thanks again, Arnold!
) in 2008, most of us in northern California really want to know, explicitly, what 100% of the ingredients are in everything. Period. No matter who assures us of what.
2) The USDA regulations/qualifications on "organic" that were almost passed three or so years ago were scary; the ones that did pass were better, but not by much. OMRI- or Oregon Tilth-certified are, to my mind, more reliable than "organic," which usually means USDA organic.
Snail/slug hunting is 100% safe to the gardener, 100% fatal to the snails and slugs detected. Numbers that I really like
