Warning about something called: Ortho Bug-Geta

I saw someone Tweet the link to this:

Bargersville Veterinary Hospital


FYI-Ortho Bug Geta has changed there formula to make it more tasty to slugs and snails. Unfortunately it also makes it more tasty for our pet family members! A client found this out the hard way. After treating their yard for 5 years with this product, this year their beloved pet got into it... This little sweetheart is quite sick and will be spending the night at an emergency clinic, but is expected to  recover.


Never heard of it. Have always just used the old ways--if a problem where no plants matter--pour a trail of table-salt.  If around plants, just pour a pie-tin of beer.
