Pomacea canaliculata (Lamarck, 1822) From Drainage System Just East Of Philips Highway

    Because of a dearth of suitable substrate, some of the Pomacea crawl up onto the lawn bordering the water and deposit their egg clutches on St. Augustine grass. Should the water level in the retention pond rise even only a few inches, the eggs would be destroyed. During optimal conditions the snails seek out more substantial substrate to deposit their egg clutches and deposit them a couple of feet above the normal water level.
