Slugs and snails are amongst the most harmful plagues for professional agriculture in the whole world, causing significant problems in amateur gardens. Damages can vary from reduced yield, which occurs in Europe, with slugs eating plants of young crops, and in Asia, where the golden apple snail can decimate whole areas of paddy rice, resulting in total harvest loss. Slugs and snails can also cause the reduction of the product quality, such as in citric fruits and vegetables. For gardeners, expensive specimen plants or plants cultivated in recipients can be lost, resulting in unpleasant aspect plants or flaws in the plantation schemes.
