Slugs and snails (class Gastropoda) are the obligate intermediate hosts of the rat lungworm, Angiostrongylus cantonensis. This nematode is the causative agent of human angiostrongyliasis and the most common cause of human eosinophilic meningoencep...

The ecobiological effects of arable cropping and nontarget effects of methiocarb are reviewed. It is concluded that methiocarb pellets are effective for slug control, and used at the recommended rate have no significant side-effects on populations...
