African giant snail forces an entire city into quarantine: fear of meningitis

They got their name rightly because they can grow to be over 20 centimeters tall. The animals actually come from Africa – how they got to Florida is not exactly known. But it is a plague for the US state, because the snails can not only make people sick, but also endanger animals and the environment. With the help of pesticides, the pests are now to be fought. However, the pesticide should not be dangerous for vegetables and fruit.

And the quarantine that is currently in place is not one that we got to know during the Corona period. The point is that residents should not bring plants, soil, garden waste, compost, debris or building materials outside the zone for two years. The authorities want to prevent further spread.
