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
", and "Milax sowerbyi". "R. limacum" can often be seen swarming about their host's body, and live in its respiratory cavity.

The slug mite, "Riccardoella limacum", is known to parasitize several dozen species of mollusks, including many slugs, such as "Agriolimax agrestis", "Arianta arbustrum", "Arion ater", "Arion hortensis", "Limax maximus", "Milax budapestensis", "Milax
", and "Milax sowerbyi". 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.
