Large African Snails

The answer to eradicating Large African Snail pests in the Solomons lies in teaching the general population how to shell, gut, and clean these snails in order to boil them long enough to be edible, by teaching the genearal population that these are infact edible, and how to prepare them, you will have eradicated them in no time at all given the current state of the economy and the fact that most households are looking for alternative sources of food other than consumer goods at the shops.

A fast search online will lead to general preparation procedures, menues and other facts concerning eating these Giant African Snails.
