Abstract

PESTAB. A study was made to ascertain optimum reproducible conditions to maintain and breed garden snails in the laboratory for subsequent use in bioassays of pesticides. The results of this study suggest that snails can be maintained and reared well in wooden terrariums measuring 54x44x30 m with a gravel-soil-leaf medium kept between pH 7 and 9. Temperature should be maintained between 22 and 28C with 65-75% humidity. Germinated greengram was a preferred food. Reproduction of the snails was successful under these conditions and the resulting population was homogeneous and well suited for bioassay of pesticides.
