Leave it for at least 6 months to rot down before digging it in-cover it with a tarpaulin or something to keep the dog away and deter the flies

Digging it in now is going to causes all sorts of problems

mmm-good questions-my feeling is that a bird is going to have to find a poisioned ant-then eat hundreds- if not more-  to feel any ill effect- if at all -so I wouldn't worry.

Any ideas why this is called a snail vine?

Saw massive slugs on lawn this morning creeping back home after a night on the tiles

Becks-does the milkman whistle, rattle crates and be called Ernie?
