Sluggo Slug and Snail Killer with Iron Phosphate is a powerful but gentle bait to kill slugs and snails. Sluggo is so safe that people and pets can enter the treated areas after application. If the bait is not consumed, it will degrade and become part of the soil, making it a perfect product for organic gardening. Even after it rains, it remains effective. It may be used up to and the same day as the harvest.
