Gardeners know all too well the frustration of dealing with slugs and snails wreaking havoc on their plants. Traditional pellets have long been the go-to solution for controlling slugs, but they often come with harmful effects on the environment, pets, and even humans. However, there’s a groundbreaking alternative that is set to revolutionize slug and snail control in gardens. Enter Slugger, the only liquid ferric phosphate product on the market. In this blog post, we will explore the remarkable features and benefits of Slugger, highlighting why it is a superior and more sustainable option compared to conventional slug pellets.
- Environmentally Friendly
Slugger stands out from its counterparts by being completely biodegradable. Unlike traditional slug pellets that contain non-biodegradable synthetic compounds, Slugger uses a unique chemical formulation that is safe for the environment. With Slugger, you can control slugs and snails without worrying about the long-term impact on your garden’s ecosystem.
- Effective and Economical
Containing 10% Iron (III) phosphate, Slugger offers the same active ingredient found in slug pellets. What sets it apart is that Slugger provides the same amount of ferric phosphate as seven large canisters of “ultra strong” slug pellets, which can be quite costly. By choosing Slugger, you not only save money but also reduce the number of single-use plastic containers that end up in landfills.
- Targeted Solution
Did you know that the majority of garden slugs reside in the soil rather than on the surface? Slugger addresses this by getting the iron phosphate into the soil where it can effectively combat the pests. This targeted approach ensures that your plants receive the necessary protection where it is required. There is no point putting slug pellets on the surface of the soil if subterranean slugs are eating subterranean tubers!
- Safe for Humans, Pets, and Plants
Unlike slug pellets, Slugger is classified as non-harmful to humans, pets, and the environment. It poses no threat to your furry friends or family members, allowing you to use it with peace of mind. Furthermore, Slugger is safe to use on all plant types, making it a versatile solution for your garden, regardless of the species you’re cultivating.
- Easy Application
Applying Slugger is a breeze. Simply dilute 50mL for every litre of tap water, making it convenient to mix in a standard watering can. For optimal results, apply Slugger at dusk when slugs and snails are most active. Use a sprayer to apply a mist to the foliage of plants, while a watering can can be used to drench the soil and treat the root zone. Remember not to apply Slugger during very hot weather or when the soil is dry to ensure maximum effectiveness.
- Additional Benefits
In addition to controlling slugs, Slugger doubles as an iron and phosphorus fertiliser. It is particularly useful for correcting iron-induced chlorosis in ericaceous plants such as Rhododendron, Camellia, Azalea, Hydrangea, and more. Slugger’s nutrient content includes 2.56% iron and 5.87% phosphate (as P2O5), providing essential elements for plant growth and health.
Slugger offers an innovative and eco-friendly way for controlling slugs and snails in your garden. With its biodegradable formulation, effectiveness in targeting pests in the soil, and safe application for humans, pets, and plants, Slugger has quickly become the go-to solution for gardeners seeking a sustainable alternative to traditional slug pellets. Embrace this fantastic discovery and enjoy a slug-free garden while contributing to a healthier environment.
