Abstract:

The study aims to know behavior of the pest slug Semperula maculata was studied during the aestivation and refeeding. The behavioral observations were mainly noted with respect to movements (crowing and burrowing), courtship, feeding preference towards the food, water and soil. These observations were made daily at 6.00 a.m., 12.00 noon and 6.00 p.m. Besides these observations because of slug s nocturnal habitat these observations were observed in the night at 10.00 p.m. and 1.00 a.m. The behavior was particularly observed at rest, during sprinkling water and during feeding hours. The defensive, escaping from the trough and behavior during handling were noted.
