맥주와 담배 혼합액을 이용한 민달팽이 방제


Control of Slug by Using Beer and Cigarette Mixture

윤종철, 박종호, 심창기, 류경열, 지형진


  Among various food base baiting materials, beer and macerated cucumber were the most effective to induce slug that is a troublesome pest on leafy vegetables, especially on lettuce. However, the baits attracted only but did not kill the pest. When the baits were combined with various insecticidal organic materials, a few combinations such as beer and cigarette mixture successfully induced and killed the slug in the field test. The most effective combination of beer 50 ㎖ and a cigarette contained in a small plastic box killed 25 slugs per night. While macerated cucumber 50 ㎖ and a cigarette mixture killed only 4.3 slugs. The bait of beer and cigarette mixture revealed 68.4% control value against slug damage when treated for 3 consecutive days in a lettuce cultivation greenhouse. The bait also effectively reduced the slug damage in a lettuce nursery showing 58.3% control value. The method seemed highly useful for the control of slug in the organic farming system in which application of pesticides are strictly prohibited.
