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 1000sq 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.>
