A survey was conducted in the coffee growing areas of Karnataka, India. Among the three districts (Chikamagaluru, Hassan and Kodagu) surveyed, Kodagu District (Shanivarsanthe) recorded highest infestation of Giant African snail (GAS). Different types of attractive materials and baits were evaluated to find out the suitable and best attractant/bait to manage the GAS population in the field. Among them, chopped raw papaya followed by rice bran with jaggery was considered as effective in attracting highest number of snails. Earlier studies revealed that Methomyl 40 SP bait was effective and recommended for the management of GAS. The present study revealed that Thiodicarb 75 WP bait can be used as alternative for Methomyl for the management of Giant African Snail.
