Overview & Benefits
Ortho® Slug B Gon® ECO Slug and Snail Bait is an easy and effective way to eliminate snails and slugs in your garden to prevent damage to your plants and produce. This package size is ideal for protecting large outdoor gardens or multiple plots and is easy to use: simply scatter bait granules around the plants you want to protect, or around the entire garden to form a barrier. This bait stops slugs and snails from eating as soon as they consume it and eliminates them in 3 to 6 days. Bait that isn’t consumed simply degrades and becomes part of your garden soil.

How to use
Scatter the bait granules on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. Apply bait evenly at approximately 5 grams per square metre. Reapply as the bait is consumed or every two weeks where snails and slugs continue to be a problem. Do not place in piles. If the ground is dry, wet it before applying bait. The soil should be moist but with little or no standing water. Do not apply to foliage or other plant parts.
Where to use
This bait is ideal for protecting vegetable and flower gardens, ornamental shrubs, berry plants and fruit. Circling the garden plot or plants/shrubs/trees with bait effectively creates a barrier to slugs and snails. All likely areas of infestation should be treated, especially around the perimeter of garden plots because these pests travel into plant areas from daytime refuges. They favour damp, shady places around plants.
When to apply
Evening is the best time to apply the bait, as slugs and snails travel and feed mostly by night or early morning.
How often to apply
Reapply as the bait is consumed or every two weeks where snails and slugs continue to be a problem.
