Why control slugs?

Slugs can cause serious damage to new crops. They eat seeds and young shoots of most crops including clover, grasses, cereals and brassicas. As a result, seedling establishment can be greatly reduced and subsequent yields severely affected.

Slugs shelter in crop residues and cracks. It is recommended that a slug control programme should be included in all new pasture or crop plantings.


A High Concentration Formulation (Active Ingredient)

The SlugOut granular bait is small in size but high in active ingredients. SlugOut contains 18g/kg (1.8%) of the active ingredient metaldehyde, but all of the metaldehyde is in the edible outer coating, giving an effective concentration of 90g/kg (9%). The active is also attractive to slugs and snails.

Once the slug or snail has consumed SlugOut it is immobilised and then dies from irreversible damage to its mucous cells.
