Snail Identification and Control: The Back Pocket Guide

Cover of Snail Identification and control back pocket guide

Grain contamination by round and conical snails poses a serious threat to grain exports. Strict grain quality standards for snail contamination are imposed at the silo. Snails also cause damage to emerging crops and can clog machinery at harvest resulting in delays and frustration.

Controlling snail populations is vital if grain contamination and crop damage are to be prevented. This means monitoring and managing snails regularly throughout the year.

This guide helps growers identify the snails that are pests of crops and pastures and outlines year-round control strategies.
