Finally catching up with the cleaning procedure. I continued to change the water every other day or so. Sure don't need any more mosquitoes around here. I finally found my jar of alum (I use it also in canning to keep pickles crisp). Drain the bucket down to about half and add a few Tablespoons of the alum, stir around and leave for a couple of days. This should kill off any remaining snail eggs. To dispose of the alum water I dump it on the grass as I'm not sure what effect it might have on my garden plants. You now rinse everything will fresh water and now you can pack and mail. I'm transporting a dozen or so to the FL Round Up so they'll be staying in the 5 gallon bucket until we go.
