Before giving any details concerning these pests, it will be well to explain that slugs and snails are, of course, not insects. They have been included in this series of articles, however, because the damage they do resembles very much that done by various insects and because the lot of recommending control measures usually falls to an entomologist. The snail could more correctly be called a shellfish than an insect as it is a true mollusc, but one which has become adapted to a life on land instead of in the water.
