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.
