Please don't get into shipping these things around the continent. They are
nuisance enough right where they are.
Sure, we may all be responsible here and not discard them in local waterways
but what about their microscopic offspring going down your drain? What if
some survive?
Oh, you use your tank water on your lawn, not down the drain... What about
the birds that land on your wet lawn and then carry the larvae (correct
term?) on their wet feet to the waterways?

Same could be wondered about snails too I think - I like to use the tank
water on my house plants but I'm concerned about using it outside.
