Science Panel to Aid Montana Invasive Species Council in Management Options for Invasive Eastern Heath Snail

Eastern heath snail panelists will meet with MISC and agency staff December 7-10, 2020

Science Panel to Aid Montana Invasive Species Council in Management Options for Invasive Eastern Heath Snail

The Montana Invasive Species Council (MISC) in partnership with the Montana Department of Agriculture (MDA), United States Department of Agriculture-Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, and the Montana State University has formed a science advisory panel to examine the existing body of knowledge about the eastern heath snail (Xerolenta obvia) in order to better understand the risks and impacts associated with the species, and to identify the best containment and management strategy.

Panelists have provided responses to a series of questions about the basic biology of the snail, along with survey, monitoring, and control methods for managing it and pathways for movement and introduction. Through a series of virtual workshops, the panelists will meet with MISC and agency staff December 7-10, 2020, to discuss the question responses and develop recommendations and best practices to prevent further introductions and manage snail populations already established. For more information about the panel or workshop contact Stephanie Criswell, MISC Coordinator, at 406-444-0547, scriswell@mt.gov.
