    I HAVE A FEW RAMSHORN SNAILS AND SMALL POND SNAILS IN MY GREENHOUSE, WHERE I KEEP WATER 60F ALL WINTER. I’M LOCATED ON LONG ISLAND. I’VE TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY FOR SEVERAL YEARS TO ERADICATE. NOTHING WORKED. I’VE REMOVED ALL PLANTS AND USED CHLORINE & COPPER AT HIGH DOSES, NOTHING WORKED. I’VE REINTRODUCED THE ORIGINAL WATER PLANTS, AND SOME GOLDFISH. MINOR RESULTS – ANUY SUGGESTIONS?? BOB

    Hi Bob, I’ll try to help you. Tell me more about your use of copper. What formulation? What rates? How many treatments? Also, what plants and fish are in the pools? Email me at jessvd@aol.com Regards, Jess
