ABSTRACT
Effectiveness of several kinds of beer and molluscicides in gastropod control was tested in a 15-week experiment in an allotment garden, using plants of Callistephus chinensis. Among the total of 462 gastropods trapped during the observation period, 98.1% were slugs; the greatest number of gastropods was trapped in July, in the first week of the experiment. The most effective baits were beer Żubr (25.5% of all trapped gastropods), Mesurol SK 04 GB (14.5%) and beer Żywiec Porter (13.2%). The degree of plant damage dependend negatively on the number of trappedgastropods, suggesting a possibility of slug control in allotments by means of various kinds of baits.
