Examples of "arianta"
Arianta is a medium-sized genus of European land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the family Helicidae.
Arianta arbustorum is a medium-sized species of land snail, sometimes known as the "copse snail", a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Helicidae.
"Arianta arbustorum" is introduced to North America, but is only known from Canada, where established populations are known from Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Prince Edward Island.
"Arianta arbustorum" lives in forests and open habitats of any kind. It requires humidity. It lives also in disturbed habitats (not in Ireland where it is restricted to old native woodland). It may locally tolerate non-calcareous substrate, in north Scotland also on sandhills. In the Alps up to 2700 m, in Britain 1200 m, in Bulgaria 1500 m.
Slugs are parasitised by several organisms, including acari and a wide variety of nematodes. The slug mite, "Riccardoella limacum", is known to parasitise several dozen species of mollusks, including many slugs, such as "Agriolimax agrestis", "Arianta arbustrum", "Arion ater", "Arion hortensis", "Limax maximus", "Milax budapestensis", "Milax gagates", and "Milax sowerbyi". "R. limacum" can often be seen swarming about their host's body, and live in its respiratory cavity.

Of course, any use of beneficial organisms presents risks of new invaders or of disrupting native population dynamics. Again, conservation groups like the GOERT view chemical treatments as an effective last resort. For example, metaldehyde baits are very effective, but such baits are toxic to humans and native slugs. Iron phosphate baits are less toxic than metaldehyde and carbonyl baits; however, iron phosphate degrades rapidly and must be reapplied regularly.
