Molluscicide baits are widely used for control, but these are not particularly attractive to snails as food sources... Three snail species, Cernuella virgata, Theba pisana and Cochlicella acuta were tested, using olfactometers, for attraction to 21 very different potential food items, compared with water as a control...

Spilled grain could spell mouse troubles next year.. Supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), pest management authorities are advising growers, particularly those in high-yielding regions, to take steps to discourage a potential build-up of mouse populations... Mouse populations will be monitored in typical cropping systems in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland at three key times each year, coinciding with important crop stages and critical times in the build-up of mouse populations...
