General information: (Why Sluggo is effective). This product contains a unique combination of iron phosphate, which is a plant nutrient that occurs in soils. with slug and snail bait additives. Contains iron phosphate, which is found in soil. The bait which is not ingested by snails and slugs will degrade and become a part of the soil. The bait is ingested by slugs and snails when they travel from their hiding places to plants. Ingestion, even in small amounts, will cause them to cease feeding. This physiological effect of the bait gives immediate protection to the plants even though the slugs and snails may remain in the area. After eating the bait, the slugs and snails cease feeding, become less mobile and begin to die within three to six days. Dead slugs and snails may not be visible as they often crawl away to secluded places to die. Plant protection will be observed in the decrease in plant damage. The slugs and snails controlled by this product include (but are not limited to): Deroceras reticulatum (Field slug), Deroceras laeve (Smooth slug), Arion subfuscus (Dusky slug), Arion circumscriptus (Gray garden slug), Arion hortensi (Black field slug), Arion rufus (Large red slug), Arlon ater (Large black slug), Limax flavus (Spotted garden slug), Limax tenellus (Slender slug), Ariolimax columbianus (Banana slug), Helix sp, HenceIla spp., and Cepaea spp. Note: This package is sold by weight.
