Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:097 Tip: Many snail baits are extremely toxic to pets, children and the environment. A safer alternative is iron phoshate in pellet form.


Additional Information

 Sluggo slug & snail bait claims to be the only control product for these pests that is not based on the toxin metaldehyde.

The iron phosphate and slug and snail attractant in this product breaks down into an organic gardening approved plant fertilizer. The label also says it can be used around edible plants right up to the day of harvest. The product label can be viewed at http://www.montereylawngarden.com/products/organic/
