The most economically important species of slug (> 90%) in the Pacific Northwest that is most associated with damaging field crops is the gray field slug (or commonly called the gray garden slug), Deroceras reticulatum, Müller. This slug species can be found in cultivated areas such as agricultural field crops, backyard gardens, roadside, parks, and meadows. This slug is much less common in natural habitats (e.g., forests). It is native to Europe, North Africa and the Atlantic Islands.
