Yes, it does but it also rots. Maybe just bake them plaster of Paris pucks. Easy to make. Get Dap brand of plaster of Paris and combine sinking pellets with it. Worked well for me. Use ice trays to make cubes of them. A cube can last three to four weeks while the snails bite them away little by little trying to get through the pellets. No flakes. They're a mess.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
