Chemical control of terrestrial slugs and snails



Chemical control of terrestrial slugs and snails



Station Bulletin, Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station (628): 70



Results are presented of laboratory, greenhouse and field studies on slug and snail control at Corvallis. In tests in boxes of pansy seedlings in commercial glasshouses infested with slugs (Agriolimax reticulatus, Arion ater and Arion hortensis) Mesurol (methiocarb) applied as a spray at 0.25 or 0.5% a.i. to the soil or the plants themselves or as 2% granules at 72 lb/acre effectively controlled A. reticulatus but did not appear to control Arion spp.
