snail shellsInvasive species are becoming an issue in the lakes here in Hot Springs Village. In particular the POA is in contact with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission to help with figuring out which type of snail has invaded the water and how to control the spread. It is advised that no one should be eating or handling these snails since it is unknown what these snails could possibly be harboring in terms of parasites and/or harmful bacteria.
