SLUGGO gets rid of slugs and snails and can safely be used around pets and wildlife! Contains iron phosphate, which occurs naturally in soil, along with snail and slug bait attractants in the form of wheat gluten. The bait not ingested by snails and slugs will degrade and become a part of the soil. SLUGGO remains effective even after rain.
Slugs and snails are attracted to SLUGGO, which lures them from their hiding places. After eating the bait, the slugs and snails cease feeding because the iron phosphate interferes with calcium metabolism in their gut, causing the snails and slugs to stop feeding almost immediately. They die three to six days later. Dead slugs and snails may not be visible as they often crawl away to secluded places to die.
SLUGGO is effective against a wide variety of slugs and snails and will give protection to home lawns, gardens, greenhouses, outdoor ornamentals, vegetable gardens, fruits, berries, citrus and crop plants. The bait can be scattered on the lawn or on the soil around any vegetable plants, flowers, fruit trees or bushes to be protected. SLUGGO will be most effective if used in early spring when the baby slugs appear from the eggs that have wintered over in the soil. When you see the first leaves of a host plant or other bulbs popping up from the soil, it is time to cover the area affected by slugs with the granules. Then make another application again in a month and then again in early August. With this approach you will short circuit the three to five generations of slugs that appear every season.
SLUGGO works best when soil is moist but with little or no standing water.
