BUSH SNAILS: Control in Phalaenopsis Use slug and snail bait (granules) containing a combination of metaldehyde and mesurol. A78-13 0
BUSH SNAILS: Control in the Greenhouse In tests, metaldehyde was the most effective bait; method of application is important; a dozen brands tested were ineffective and blocked drainage; liquid sprays were partly effective; 2 ttpg. of 20% metaldehyde used as a soak overnight was completely successful. A70-528+ 0
