Iron phosphate and spinosad (which is produced from a soil bacterium) are the active ingredients in this organic bait that kills earwigs, cutworms, sowbugs, pillbugs, slugs, and snails. These pests generally travel and feed in the night and early morning, so evening is the best time to scatter the Sluggo® Plus pellets. To keep slugs and snails away from a specific area, scatter the bait around the perimeter to form an edible decoy. Sluggo® Plus works best when the soil is moist, and lasts up to four weeks. Apply evenly at approximately one-half to one pound per 1000 sq ft, or up to one teaspoon per square yard. Lasts up to 4 weeks.
Sluggo® Plus is suitable for use around vegetables, fruits, berries, outdoor ornamentals, lawns, and in greenhouses.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Earwigs were doing a number on my dahlias -- yes, I know experts say earwigs don't cause much damage, but when the population explodes, I beg to differ. I scattered Sluggo Plus in the bed per directions, and the next round of dahlias is untouched and perfect for cutting.
