SLUGGO Plus: Bait for Slugs, Snails and more!   OMRI Listed


Sluggo Plus bait kills slugs and snails and can safely be used around pets, wildlife and people! An improved formulation of Sluggo! Not only will Sluggo Plus kill slugs and snails, it will also kill earwigs, cutworms, sowbugs and pillbugs. Made from iron phosphate and spinosad, a naturally occurring soil dwelling bacterium. Apply bait at .5-1 lb per 1000 square feet, or .5-1 tsp per square yard. Lasts up to 4 weeks. Can be applied up to the day before harvest. Sluggo Plus continues to remain effective after rain.

Iron phosphate occurs naturally in soil. The bait that is not ingested by snails or slugs etc. will biodegrade and become part of the soil in your garden. Sluggo Plus is attractive to the pests, luring them from their hiding places and plants. This physiological effect of the bait gives immediate protection to the plants, even though the pests may remain in the area. After eating the bait, the pests cease feeding, become less mobile and begin to die within three to six days. Dead pests 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.

This product is effective against a wider variety of pests and will give protection to home lawns, gardens, greenhouses, outdoor ornamentals, vegetable gardens, fruits, berries, citrus, crop and seed plants. The bait can be scattered on the lawn or on the soil around any vegetable or seed crops, flowers or fruit trees to be protected.

The pests controlled by this product include (but are not limited to): Deroceras reticulatum (Field slug), Deroceras laeve (Smooth slug), Arion subfucus (Dusky slug), Arion circumscriptus (Gray garden slug), Arion hortensis (Black field slug), Arion rufus (Large red slug), Arion ater (Large black slug), Limax flavus (Spotted garden slug), Limax tenellus (Slender slug), Ariolimax columbianus (Banana slug), Helix spp., Helicella spp., Cepaea spp. earwigs, sowbugs, pillbugs and cutworms.

How to Apply: The bait granules should be scattered on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. Apply bait evenly at approximately 1 pound per 2,000 square feet. Do not place in piles. If the ground is dry, wet it before applying bait. The soil should be moist but with little or no standing water. Reapply as the bait is consumed or at least every four weeks. Apply more heavily if the infestation is severe, if the area is heavily watered or after long periods of heavy rain. See specific directions for different plant types and for inside greenhouses.

When to Apply: Evening is the best time to apply the bait, as slugs and snails etc. travel and feed mostly by night or early morning.

Where to Apply: All likely areas of infestation should be treated, especially around the perimeter of garden plots because these pests travel into plant areas from daytime refuge sites. They favor damp places around vegetable plants such as beans, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, celery and squash, and in weeds or ditches around field margins. Other favorite areas are flower gardens, rockeries, hedges, dichondra lawns, citrus groves, ivy patches and other ground cover where they obtain shelter by day.
