Snails & Slugs

Snails and Slugs hide during the day and come out at night “rasping” (biting) large ragged holes in plants.


  1. Handpick at night (some like to toss them in a bucket of salt)
  2. SLUGGO made from Iron Phosphate is SAFE to use around pets and birds. It breaks down into a fertilizer. SLUGGO kills slowly (3-6 days).
  3. METALDEHYDE is the active ingredient in most snail baits. It paralyzes snails. It works better in sun than in shade.
We are Closing Temporarily on Friday, April 3, 2020

We have made the hard decision to close on Friday, April 3, 2020 to help protect our families and yours, and to help enforce the stay at home order. We will be back in the near future to serve you!

We have suspended phone and email/online orders effective immediately, so that we can focus on filling orders already received. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please check back here, or on our Facebook page for the latest updates on re-opening and other news. Thank you, Santa Barbara!
