Dodds, C.J.; Henderson, I.F., 2002: Control of slug and snail damage using low toxicity, plant-derived repellents and antifeedants. This study has shown that slug feeding can be manipulated using a range of secondary metabolites found in plant tissues. Chemicals have been identified which reduce or prevent slug feeding when incorporated into wheat flour pellets or when sprayed...

Laboratory bioassays were carried out to evaluate the efficacy of various products with potential for slug and snail control in horticulture and agriculture. The products tested were cinnamamide, copper ammonium carbonate, garlic, aluminium and co...

Extracts of 15 species of lichen were tested for antifeedant properties against the field slug Deroceras reticulatum. All but three showed some activity and two of these were from endolithic species. The most effective extract was from Letharia vu...
