Summary Not Available – First paragraph follows:
Weather conditions following bait treatments for the control of the European brown garden snail in citrus groves substantially influenced the ultimate effectiveness of carbamate molluscicides. Baits containing Mesurol were more effective under unfavorable conditions than the other carbamates used in the tests. Under optimum treatment conditions, all of the carbamate baits were effective, particularly those with metaldehyde inclusions.
