Sluggo Maxx contains a unique combination of iron phosphate, which is a plant nutrient that occurs in soils, with slug and snail bait additives. The bait which is not ingested by snails and slugs will degrade and become a part of the soil.
The bait is ingested by slugs and snails when they travel from their hiding places to plants. Ingestion, even in small amounts, will cause them to cease feeding and die. This physiological effect of the bait gives immediate protection to the plants even though the slugs and snails may remain in the area. After eating the bait, the slugs and snails cease feeding and die. Dead slugs and snails may not be visible as they often crawl away to secluded places to die. Immediate plant protection will be observed in the decrease in plant damage.
Sluggo Maxx 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, nut trees, 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.
