Molluscicides Market: An Overview
Molluscicides are special type of pesticides which are used to kill mollusks, specifically slugs and snails. Of the various end users, demand for these pesticides continues to remain concentrated for agricultural and gardening industries. Molluscicides are sometimes referred as bait as they are also used to entice mollusks. When molluscicides are ingested or touched by the snail or slug, then the chemicals contained in molluscicides alter their water balance, and it inhibits some of their body functions resulting in their demise. Molluscicides’s benefits encourage their demand among the farmers and gardeners.
