Janet from Maryland writes,

How often do I need to reapply Sluggo Plus Snail & Slug Killer and what area size can I can treat.

Do i need to apply it all over my yard or lawn?


Apply Sluggo evenly at approximately 0.5 to 1 lb. per 1,000 square feet, or for smaller areas, 0.075 to 0.15 oz., or 0.5 to 1 teaspoon, per square yard. Each 1 lb container of Sluggo can cover up to 2,000 sq ft. You should reapply every 4 weeks or after heavy rains (not to exceed 3 applications per month). Treat all likely areas of infestation, especially around the perimeter of garden plots for slugs and snails, because these pests travel into plant areas from daytime refuges. They favor damp places around vegetable plants such as beans, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, celery and squash. Other favorite areas are flower gardens, rockeries, hedges, dichondra, lawns, ivy patches, and other ground cover where they obtain shelter by day.Please read the Sluggo product label for complete usage instructions.
