Kills Slugs & Snails
Garden Safe brand Slug & Snail Bait is a unique blend of an iron phosphate active ingredient, originating from soil, with slug and snail bait additives. After eating the bait, the slugs and snails cease feeding, become less mobile and begin to die within three to six days. This product is effective against a wide variety of slugs and snails and will give protection to home lawns, gardens, greenhouses, outdoor ornamentals, vegetable gardens, fruits, berries, citrus and crop plants. The bait can be scattered on the lawn or on the soil around any vegetable plants, flowers or fruit trees or bushes to be protected.
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. How to Apply: Scatter the Garden Safe brand Slug & Snail Bait granules on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. For broadcast application, use standard broadcast spreaders. For row application, use standard granular spreaders. Apply bait evenly at approximately 1/2 to 1 lb per 1,000 square feet, or for smaller areas. 0.15 oz or 1 level teaspoon per square yard, and reapply as the bait is consumed or at least every two weeks. Do not place in piles. If the ground is dry, wet it before applying bait. The product works best when soil is moist but with little or no standing water. Reapply as the bait is consumed or at least every two weeks. Apply more heavily of infestation is severe, if the area is heavily watered or after long periods of heavy rain. See specific directions for different plant types ad for inside greenhouses. When to Apply: Evening is the best time to apply the bait, as slugs and snails travel and feed mostly by right or early morning. Where to Apply: Treat all likely areas of infestation, especially around the perimeter of garden plots because these pests travel into plant areas from daytime refuges. They favor damp places around vegetable plants such as beans, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, celery and squash. Other favorite areas are flower gardens, rockeries, hedges, dichondra lawns, citrus groves, ivy patches and other ground cover where they obtain shelter by day. Vegetables: The bait can be used to protect any vegetables from slug and snail damage, including (but not limited to): artichokes, asparagus, beans, beets, blackeyed peas, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrots, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, garlic, lettuce, onions, peas, peppers, potatoes, radishes, rutabagas, spinach, squash, Swiss chard, tomatoes and turnips. Scatter the bait around the perimeter of the vegetable plot at approximately 1/2 to 1 lb per 1,000 square feet, or for smaller areas, 0.15 oz or 1 level teaspoon per square yard, to provide a protective barrier for slugs and snails entering the garden plot. If slugs or snails are inside the rows, then scatter the bait on the soil around the base of the plants and between the rows. Fruit Including Citrus: The bait can be used to protect fruits from slugs and snails, including (but not limited to): apples, apricots, avocados, cherries, citrus, grapes, melons, peaches, pears and plums. For seedlings, spread the bait around the base of the stem. Apply at 0.15 oz or 1 level teaspoon per square yard, in a 6-inch circular band around the base of the plants to be protected. For older trees, spread the bait around the base of the tree to intercept slugs and snails traveling to the trunk. Apply the bait at approximately 1/2 to 1 lb per 1,000 square feet for orchards using standard fertilizer granular spreaders. Berries: The bait can be used to protected berries from slugs and snails, including (but nit limited to): blackberries, blueberries, boysenberries, loganberries, raspberries and strawberries. Spread the bait around the perimeter of the plot to intercept slugs and snails migrating toward the berries. Use a rate of approximately 1/2 to 1 lb per 1,000 square feet, or for smaller areas, 0.15 oz or 1 level teaspoon per square yard, and scatter by hand or with granular spreaders. If slugs and snails are already in the plots, then carefully spread bait between the furrows near the base of the plants. For small plots, treat around the base of the plants to be protected. Do not spread over the entire area but apply selectively. Outdoor Ornamentals: Scatter bait in a 6-inch circular band around the base of the plants to be protected at 0.15 oz or 1 level teaspoon per square yard. If plants are next to a grassy area, spread the bait between the ornamentals and the grass. Slugs and snails traveling to the plants will encounter the bait before reaching the plant. In these situations, scatter the bait around the perimeter of the plot at approximately 1 lb per 1,000 square feet to intercept snails and slugs traveling to the plot. Greenhouses: Where slugs or snails are a problem in greenhouses, scatter the bait in the plant pots of plants being damaged or around pots on greenhouse benches. Apply about 1/2 teaspoon per 9-inch pot. Lawns: The bait can be used to protect lawns. When slugs or snails are detected, scatter the bait at a rate of approximately 1/2 to 1 lb per 1,000 square feet, or for smaller areas, 0.15 oz or 1 level teaspoon per square yard. Scatter by hand or with a granular spreader where the slugs or snails are observed. Storage and Disposal: Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage or disposal.
