Re: Terminator Turtle

My local garden supplier has something for sale called "Terminator
Turtle," green metal in the shape of a turtle, about eight inches long,
five inches wide, and two inches deep.  It has a top and a bottom, with
(about) half-inch slits along each side.  Into one of the slits you
slide a wafer of bait containing four percent metaldehyde.  It costs
about $20; refills of the bait cost about $8.  I'm told that our little
friends the slugs ingest the poison and crawl way to die. Cats and dogs
and children cannot get in. I believe it's made by Pace International,
whose "Deadline MP's" we discussed a month or so ago.

Have any of you heard of this new product?  I've ordered a few to try
out here in Wisconsin, in Illinois, and in Minnesota.
