Slugs and snails ruining your favorite plants? Stop them in their slimy tracks with this premium bait! Once consumed, the bait causes the pests to stop eating and moving with the assurance of death within 3 to 6 days. This formula is highly effective at killing slugs and snails but eco-friendly and safe to use around pets and local wildlife. The granules are easy to apply and should be used in flower beds, veggie gardens, shrubs and lawns. Please carefully read all instructions on the package before usage for best results.

How to apply: Scatter the slug and snail bait granules on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. Apply the bait during the evening, as slugs and snails travel and feed mostly by night or early morning. Treat all areas of infestation, especially around the perimeter of garden pots because these pests travel into plant areas from daytime refuges. Apply bait evenly at the rate of .5-1lb per 1000 square feet, or for smaller areas .15oz or 1 level teaspoon per square yard. Reapply as the bait is consumed or at least every two weeks. Apply at a higher rate if the infestation is severe, if the areas is highly watered, or after long periods of rain. Do not place in piles. If the ground is dry, wet it before applying the bate. The product works best when soil is moist but with little or no standing water.
