Metaldehyde is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C8H16O4. It is classified as an organic compound and specifically falls into the category of cyclic tetramer of acetaldehyde. Metaldehyde is commonly used as a pesticide and molluscicide, primarily targeting slugs and snails in agricultural and gardening applications.

As a pesticide, metaldehyde is known for its molluscicidal properties, effectively controlling populations of slugs and snails that can cause significant damage to crops and ornamental plants. It works by inducing dehydration and paralysis in these pests upon ingestion, ultimately leading to their demise. Metaldehyde is often formulated into pellets or granules for ease of application and dispersal in fields and gardens.

Metaldehyde is widely used in agriculture, horticulture, and landscaping to protect crops, vegetables, flowers, and other plants from slug and snail infestations. It is particularly valuable in regions with high humidity and rainfall, where slug and snail populations thrive and pose a significant threat to agricultural productivity.
