2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
Human and Animal Pathogens Transmitted:
Aeromonas hydrophila, Angiostrongylus cantonensis, and Angiostrongylus costaricensis. Achatinids can also carry other diseases that affect humans and animals, including the bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila.
Plant Pathogens and Organisms Vectored:
Lissachatina fulica has been implicated in the transmission of the plant diseases Phytophthora colocasia, Phytophthora palmivora, and Phytophthora parasitica. However, the relative importance of Lissachatina fulica as a transmission agent in the epidemiology of these diseases under usual cropping conditions has not been well established (Raut and Barker, 2002).
