Safers Slug & Snail Bait 1 kg
For use around vegetables, fruit trees, berries, ornamentals (shrubs, flowers, trees) and lawns.
Apply the bait evenly at approximately 2 grams per square meter on the soil around or near the plants to be protected from slugs or snails.
Product may be dispensed directly from the container to small areas as a spot treatment or can be applied using a handheld spreader. For broadcast application, standard broadcast spreaders may be used. For row application, standard granular spreaders may be used.
Reapply as the bait is consumed or every 14 days where slugs and snails continue to be a problem. Do not place bait in heaps. If the ground is dry, wet the soil before applying the bait. The soil should be moist but with little or no standing water. Do not apply to foliage or other plant parts. Evening is the best time to apply the bait, as slugs and snails travel and feed mostly by night or early morning. This bait protects vegetables and ¬tower gardens, ornamental shrubs, berry plants and fruit trees from slugs and snails.
Circling the garden plot or plant/shrubs/trees with bait effectively creates a barrier to slugs and snails, but if slugs/snails are within the plot the bait will need to be scattered around the plants as well. All likely areas of infestation should be treated, especially around the perimeter of garden plots because these pests travel into plant areas from day time refuges. They favor damp, shady places around plants.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes. Although phytotoxicity is not expected, it is recommended that a small group of test plants or small area be treated with Safer’s Slug and Snail Killer before treating an entire crop.
Safer's Slug & snail killer is a unique formulation that increases palatability by slugs and snails for quick, effective control. It kills a variety of slugs and many species of snails. Safer's Slug & snail killer functions as a contact and stomach poison to ensure that feeding stops immediately after the bait is eaten. Slugs and snails will crawl away to hide and die leaving no visible slime trails. Safer's Slug & snail killer remains effective for up to 14 days, even after rain and watering.
