With Spring here we will all be once again working in our gardens. I just want to remind (or inform) you about the toxicity of Snail Bait to dogs and cats and also there is a mulch being sold that has cocoa beans in it. It is also toxic.

The following was set to me, and I am passing it on to you:

In Loving Memory of Calypso.

Cocoa Mulch is manufactured by
Hershey's, and they claim that "It is true that studies have shown
that 50% of the dogs that eat Cocoa Mulch can suffer physical harm to variety of degrees (depending on each individual dog). However, 98% of all dogs won't eat it."

True information about the mulch can be found here -

This site gives the following information:
Cocoa Mulch, which is sold by Home Depot, Foreman's Garden Supply and other Garden supply stores, contains a lethal ingredient called "Theobromine".

It smells like chocolate and it really attracts dogs. They will
ingest this stuff and die. Several deaths already occurred in the
last 2-3 weeks. Just a word of caution ? check what you are using in
your gardens and be aware of what your gardeners are using in your
gardens.

Thank you for the information. I have recently seen this same caution on this particular product.
It is so important to safeguard our animals at this time of year...so many possible dangers.
I appreciate your post.
