Snail and Slug Epidemic
Snails and Slugs have had it too good for too long.
These slow moving living boogers are more than just gross to look at, they are a real problem to grain farmers around WA.
The pests can cause up to 3 million dollars a year in damage to farmers due to yield losses and control methods so the Departure of Agriculture and Food are researching new ways to get these weird alien slime creatures under control to help farmers identify areas of crops that are affected by snails and slugs and better guide targeted baiting.
The Departure of Agriculture and Food is investigating the use of digital technology to assist growers to map the presence of snails and slugs in their paddocks.
Your days are numbered, Roz.
Remember Roz, the weird slug thing from Monsters Inc? She was super gross and had a silly grey mohawk. Ah good times.
