Scatter the bait granules on the soil around or near the plants to be protected with a suitable hand or power operated spreader (gravity or rotary) to ensure uniform coverage over the treatment area. Apply bait 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. Do not place in piles. Scatter the bait around the perimeter of the area to provide a protective “barrier” for pests entering the area. If the ground is dry, wet it before applying bait. Sluggo Plus works best when soil is moist but with little or no standing water. Do not use food utensils such as tablespoons, cups, etc. for food purposes after pesticide use.
Do not apply more than 3 times in any 30 day period. Apply at the higher rate if the infestation is severe. Re-apply after heavy rain or watering. Do not apply within 3 days of harvest.
For seedlings, spread the bait around the base of the stem. For trees or shrubs, spread the bait around the base of the tree. For small plots, treat around the base of the plants to be protected. In greenhouses, scatter the bait in the pots of plants being damaged or around pots on greenhouse benches.
Evening is the best time to apply the bait as pests travel and feed mostly by night or early morning. Treat all likely areas of infestation, especially around the perimeter of garden plots for target pests because pests travel into plant areas from daytime refuges. Slugs & snails 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.

Sluggo Plus A Blessing
By Janet in Pittsburgh Pa. on 06/22/2012
I had so many pill bugs, sowbugs, and earwigs in my flower bed that they devoured over 100 annuals and I had to do something fast to save the sickly plants that were left. I put down Sluggo Plus according to the directions (which is not real heavy) and within a few days I did not see any more plant damage. It has been a little over 3 weeks and I do not see any more bugs and my plants have come back beautifully. This definitely did an excellent job of getting rid of them.

This stuff really works! My seeds, seedlings, and new plants from the nursery were all getting eaten by sow bugs. Every morning I would find them on any new tender plants I still had in my vegetable garden. The day after applying Sluggo Plus, they were gone! No more damage from them!

Not having much luck
By Trent in Madison, In on 05/18/2013
I have applied sluggo twice in the last several weeks and so far I have noticed pillbugs eating it but the slugs are bypassing it and feeding on my plants. It is also attracting ants. I've decided to try something more potent.

This has been GREAT!
By Rebecca in Sugar Hill, GA on 07/09/2014
I have had a huge slug problem in my garden for three years and because of my dogs, have tried every "natural" remedy out there and none have worked. Since I started using Sluggo, things have gotten a lot better. I've seen one or two, but nothing like last year and my plants have been better for it. Also, the dogs don't seem to have any interest in it whatsoever. My vincas didn't seem to like it, but I would say all of my other plants are 99.9% slug and snail free. This has definitely been a huge improvement.

QHow 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?
AApply 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.
