Never consume uncooked or under-cooked food items dirtied with the slime from snails or slugs. Clean, rinse, or scrub all food stock or boil it. This includes boiling snails, freshwater prawns, crabs, and frogs not less than three to five minutes. Never handle the snails or slugs with uncovered hands. Always use gloves. If you grow a garden, always apply slug bait to it. If you have catchment for water for your household, always keep it covered to prevent slugs or snails to fall in or to contaminate your tanks. Cover your catchment tanks to prevent slugs and snails from having access. One more thing you can do to prevent rat lung is to control rodents on your property by setting traps or by putting out bait to kill them.
