Slugs – How to control

Slugs

Description: : Brown to grayish, up to 2″ long, looks like

a snail without a shell. Eggs are laid in jelly-like

masses under debris in damp areas. Slugs live a year

or more and develop slowly. In spring, they are one

of the first pests to feed on seedlings and ornamentals,

eating large holes and leaving a slimy trail. They like

tender leaf growth of peas, lettuce and other greens;

hostas and other perennials.

Solution: Escar-Go!TM Slug

& Snail Control! is very effective. Slugs

and snails are attracted to the bait and stop feeding

shortly after ingestion. Plant bed may be protected

by dribbling a 2″ ring of Slug-Out to keep slugs out

of an area to be protected. Slug Saloon traps may be used to

monitor slug population levels.
