Carabus nemoralis is a beneficial predator as it eats the agricultural pest Deroceras reticulatum slug, in its young stage and also its eggs. Use of Carabus nemoralis as a biocontrol agent for multiple pests in large scale farming operations have been tested in recent years.

Defensive Adaptations

It is known that some Carabus nemoralis populations will regurgitate foul-smelling brownish-red liquid as a defensive mechanism.
