molluskocide

I am an evil slaughterer of snails. I got tired of them eating my basil and scattered slug bait around the plants yesterday. This morning, there are 13 dead snails in drifts around the two basil plants. I feel guilty despite aforementioned eating.

I'm leaving them in place in the vague hope that dead snail bodies will discourage others from coming close enough to be poisoned.
