Abstract: The suitable climatic conditions for rearing snails (Cornu aspersum and Helix lucorum) were investigated in a net greenhouse (Volos Greece). Temperature and Relative Humidity were evaluated during light and darkness for the period of a month. In addition, snails’ growth was recorded. In October 2011, with the fog system in operation, the temperature inside the net – house was recorded to be lower than outside (14,38°C - 16,9°C). The Relative Humidity was in a very good level regarding the interior (85,13%). The next year (October 2012) in semi natural conditions, air temperature was higher inside (21,43°C), although the relative humidity was significantly lower (53,3%).
