USDA. APHIS. Plant Protection and Quarantine.

On Sep 9, 2011, APHIS confirmed the detection of Giant African Snail (GAS), Lissachatina fulica, in a residential area of Miami, Florida. Since the initial detection, APHIS has actively worked with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to conduct survey, regulatory, control, and outreach activities. Federal Orders outline the safeguarding measures required for the interstate movement of regulated articles from the areas regulated for GAS. The requirements in the State's interior quarantine for GAS are parallel to this Federal Order. GAS is one of the most damaging snails in the world because it is known to consume at least 500 different plants including vegetables, fruits, and ornamental crops.
