I just found tiny snails on a mount. How do I
treat?

Robert,

They are very difficult to get rid of. I don't know your conditions but I
use standard slug bait with some success. I guess you could put some of the
granule around the top of the mount and mist the plant to have the granules
swell up. When the snails are active at night they will eat the stuff and
die.

Good growing,
Gene

If you submerge the mount in water for say 24 hours can you drown these
pests? The orchid should not be affected.

I would guess they are &quot;bush snails&quot;, which are neither attracted to-, nor
killed by most slug and snail baits. As far as I know, only Mesurol is
listed for them, and it is unfortunately, a restricted use chemical here in
PA. (It's probably available in other states, so if anyone finds a source,
please let me know.)

For what it's worth - and I apologize to all for bringing this up again -
but I have noted the apparent elimination of them from plants that have been
repeatedly sprayed with coffee (yeah, that caffeine question again).

Of more concern though, is the fact that they have appeared on a mounted
plant. Unless you just got it and it came to you that way, I would fear
that you have a much bigger population elsewhere in your collection, and
bush snails can be pretty nasty on your plants.

I have had some luck with the snail baits that are almost a paste. I
put a drop in each corner of a pot I suspect they are in or on an old
label I can move around and lay flat. I don't remember the name, it
is something like slug-go... but don't quote me.

The ONE think I will tell you is to be VERY careful NOT to SQUISH
them. It is such a temptation to pick them off and squish them, then
you reach for another and contiue. But - These things are
hermaphrodites. Each squish fertalizes the eggs that snail carries
and soon you find YOU are seeding you plants with microscopic size
snails. And the whole works is worse. IF you do pick them off, one
of the most effective methods - I agree, dump them in a waste basket -
do not squish.

Thanks to all who have replied. I'm going to try the coffee diluted 50%
for lack of powered caffene. I live on a sailboat moored offshore and
almost all the plants are hanging in the skylight, the affected plant
is wall mounted so unless these buggers can fly I think I'm ok in
that respect. I'm a complete novice with orchids. Last summer we started
taking care of a friends orchids while they were on an extended vacation
and the addiction started. We started going to shows and bought a number
of small inexpensive plants to see how well they would do on the boat.
They all did well through the winter so this spring we started buying
the cheap flowering plants from the big box stores so as to always
have something in flower. Funny we were first interesting in the plants
and not so much the flower at first. Well we now have 25 plants and are
going to have to pass along some to hook friends and relations to make
room for more selective purchases.

Well, that's pretty cool. If you are careful about what you bring in,
you should be able to keep your collection quite pest free.

That's a great idea. I buy parrot seed in 5 gal plastic containers
and we put in dry ice to kill all the moth larva. Every pirate
needs a parrot (and orchids).

What I find works best for scale is bayer tree and shrub.
I mix an ounce to a gallon of water or fertilizer and use that
for a few watering cycles, then use once a month or so.

1. I had to look up Harris teeters to find out what it is. It turns out
to be a small chain of stores located in about 5 southeastern states.

2. You make me nervous using that phrase &quot;freeze disinfect&quot;. I assume
you realize it doesn't work by freezing? It's the CO2 that smothers the
pests. It should kill anything that requires a constant supply of oxygen
to stay alive.

I would love to try the dry ice method the next time I have a difficult
pest problem. I have no idea where I might go to buy it though. Probably
too far away to be practical for me. Actually, you can buy CO2 in a
tank. That should work and would be easier to keep on hand.

Bicycle stores carry inexpensive CO2 inflators that work with
cartidges. I guess you could place the plant in a plastic
bag and fill but I would not want to treat many plants that
way. On the other hand you would not have to work arround the
temp problem with the dry ice.

Look, I could make my own:

Of course, with one of those CO2 generators running in the basement, I
wouldn't dare to go down there. I would suffocate myself! On the
brighter side, my pest problems would be over if I filled the entire
basement with CO2. I know, I'll put on some SCUBA gear so I can go down
to see how the orchids are doing. :-)

Such devices wouldn't do the job sufficiently anyway.

CO2 &quot;enrichment&quot; for plant growth enhancement is a few-percent thing.
Insecticidal action occurs closer to saturation levels.

&gt;&gt;&gt;Actually, you can buy CO2 in a tank. That should work and would be easier
&gt;&gt;&gt;to keep on hand.
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Bicycle stores carry inexpensive CO2 inflators that work with
&gt;&gt; cartidges. I guess you could place the plant in a plastic
&gt;&gt; bag and fill but I would not want to treat many plants that
&gt;&gt; way. On the other hand you would not have to work arround the temp
&gt;&gt; problem with the dry ice.

&gt; Look, I could make my own:

&gt; Of course, with one of those CO2 generators running in the basement, I
&gt; wouldn't dare to go down there. I would suffocate myself! On the brighter
&gt; side, my pest problems would be over if I filled the entire basement with
&gt; CO2. I know, I'll put on some SCUBA gear so I can go down to see how the
&gt; orchids are doing. :-)

Darn. There goes my excuse to buy SCUBA equipment.

I had an infestation in an orchidarium a couple of years ago. I
submerged all the mounts in water. Snails and slugs came out to the
surface after two or three hours. I repeated after a couple weeks for
two or three times. Killed around 60 of them, ten the second and two or
three the last. For me was very effective, although laborious.
