Escar-Go!™ Slug & Snail


Now, nature’s secret slug control is available to home



lures slugs with a naturally-occurring substance, then

kills them within days.

Signature Product. Escar-Go! is a unique

blend of iron phosphate (it occurs naturally in soil)

and a bait that lures slugs and snails away from their

hiding places.

Repeated studies have shown that these

slimy mollusks will eat Escar-Go! before they will eat

nearby plants. As soon as slugs and snails ingest even

a small amount of Escar-Go!, they stop feeding and begin

to die within 3 to 6 days. You may not see the dead

slugs and snails in your garden because they often crawl

away to secluded places to die. But you will notice

that your plants are no longer being eaten!

Because Escar-Go! actually lures snails and slugs from

their hiding places, it provides control in any area

that slugs frequent–even in mulched beds.

Slugs Work Under Cover

Slugs and snails normally feed at night, and young garden

seedlings and transplants are among their favorite meals.

Healthy, promising seedlings can vanish overnight, and

by the time you figure out what happened, the culprits

are gone. (Only 5% of the slug population is aboveground

at any one time. The other 95% is underground, digesting

your seedlings, laying eggs and feeding on roots and

seed sprouts.) As a result, slugs get away with “plant

murder”…and cutworms often get the blame.

Better than Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) has been widely used for organic

slug control, but it’s far from ideal. You have to reapply

it after every rain. And even so, the results are spotty.

We’ve seen slugs actually “slime” their way

right over a pile of D.E. to get to the plants they


But Escar-Go! controls slugs as well as,

or better than, D.E. and other slug and snail remedies,

including the standard chemical controls. Test after

test, here and in Europe, has proven it.

Can be Used Around Pets and Wildlife

Scatter Escar-Go! granules on the soil around or near

the plants to be protected. Apply particularly in damp

places around beans, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, celery

and squash and other areas favored by snails and slugs:

rockeries, hedges, dichondra lawns, home citrus groves,

ivy and other ground covers, where they obtain shelter

by day.

Evening is the best time to apply Escar-Go!

because slugs and snails travel and feed mostly at night

or in the early morning. If the soil is dry, wet it

before applying. Apply evenly at about 1 lb. per 1,000

sq. ft. (That’s about 1 level teaspoonful per square

yard.) Reapply when you see that the bait has been consumed,

or at least every two weeks. Apply more heavily if the

infestation is severe, if the area is heavily watered

or after long periods of heavy rain. Any Escar-Go! that

isn’t eaten will degrade and become part of your garden

soil. Naturally, you don’t have to worry about secondary

poisoning of pets or wildlife.

Use Escar-Go! to protect lettuce,

tomatoes, chard, cabbage, squash, corn and other vegetables

from slug and snail damage. May also be used in the

home orchard, in the berry patch, around hostas and

other ornamentals and on lawns. In home greenhouses,

may be applied to the soil in plant pots or around greenhouse
