Sluggo Slug and Snail Bait
Kill Slugs and Snails Without Harming Pets, Wildlife
This bait kills
snails and can safely be used around pets and wildlife! Contains iron phosphate,
which occurs naturally in soil. Sluggo remains effective after rain.
This slug bait is a unique blend of an iron
phosphate active ingredient, originating from soil, with slug and snail bait
additives. It is also used as an ingredient in fertilizers. The bait which is
not ingested by snails and slugs will degrade and become a part of the soil.

Scatter the bait around the perimeter of the vegetable plot at approximately 1 lb. per 1,000 square feet to form a protective barrier against the garden pests. If slugs or snail are inside the rows, scatter the bait on the soil around the plants and between the rows.
Fruits and Citrus
For seedlings, spread the bait around the base of the stem. Apply at 1 level tablespoon per square yard, in a 6 inch circular band around the base of the plants to be protected. For older trees, spread the bait around the base of the trees to intercept slugs and snails traveling to the trunk. Use 1 pound Sluggo per 1,000 square feet for orchards using standard fertilizer granular spreaders.
Use Sluggo Slug & Snail Bait at the rate of 1 pound per 1,000 square feet. If slugs or snails are already in the plots, spread bait between the furrows near the base of the plants. Do not spread over the entire area, but apply selectively.
At the seeding and later stages, apply the slug & snail bait between the rows and around the perimeter of the field. Scatter pellets at a rate of 44 pounds per acre.
Scatter bait in a six inch circular band around the base of the plants to be protected at 1 level tablespoon per square yard.

In these situations, scatter the bait around the perimeter of the plot at approximately 1 pound per 1,000 square feet to intercept snails and slugs traveling the plot.
Where slugs or snails are a problem in greenhouses, scatter the bait in the plant pots of plants being damaged or around pots on greenhouse benches. Apply about ½ teaspoon per 9" pot.
