Biogrow Ferramol Snail Bait
Biogrow Ferramol Natural Snail Bait is an innovative organic molluscicide that protects plants effectively, without harming beneficial insects and the surrounding environment. Iron phosphate is the active ingredient. The iron phosphate is used as an ingredient in fertilizers and occurs in soil. The bait is attractive to snails and slugs and lures them from their hiding places and plants. Ingestion even in small amounts will cause them to cease feeding. This physiological effect of the bait gives immediate protection to the plants.
After eating the bait, the slugs and snails become less mobile and begin to die within three to six days.
Biogrow Ferramol Snail Bait is effective against a wide range of slugs and snails and will give protection to lawns, gardens, greenhouses, outdoor ornamentals, vegetable gardens, fruits, berries, citrus and crop plants.
The bait can be scattered on the lawn or on the soil around any vegetable plants, flowers or fruit trees or bushes to be protected.
The slugs and snails controlled by this product include: Deroceras spp., Arion spp., Limax spp., Helix spp. and Cepaea spp.
How to apply:
The pellets should be scattered on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. Do not place in piles. If the ground is dry, wet it before applying the bait. The soil should be moist, but with little or no standing water. Reapply as the bait is consumed, or at least every 3 weeks. Apply more regularly if the area is heavily watered or after heavy periods of rain.
5g or approx. 1 level teaspoon per square meter.
When to apply:
Evening is the best time to apply the bait, as slugs and snails travel and feed mostly at night or in the early morning.
Store in dry place.
