sluggit snail baitSluggit snail bait pellets (L6660) with 15g/kg Metaldehyde as active ingredient is a top seller that has over decades proven its effectiveness against snails and slugs in the field. Using a long lasting weather-resistant snail bait such as Sluggit is the foundation of an economical and effective snail management programme.

Where only snails or slugs need to be controlled, the use of Sluggit snail bait pellets is recommended, as snail bait and pellets containing carbaryl is also toxic to other soil-inhabiting beneļ¬cial insects such as isopods and earthworms and should therefore be avoided if snail and slug management is all that is required.

Sluggem, Slugger or Sluggit snail bait pellets should be scattered in areas that are regularly frequented by snails and slugs, such as areas around sprinkler heads. Quite often the area around fences are left untreated, when in fact these areas need to be treated with a higher concentration of snail bait pellets to prevent infestation of the adjacent plantings. Available in 500g and 25kg units.
