Iron phosphate, a plant nutrient found in soils, has been used for many decades as an active ingredient in slug and snail bait and remains one of the most popular and effective. Iron phosphate is attractive to gastropods and when this bait is placed where they will come across it as they forage for food, they will ingest it. Ingesting even a small amount will cause a physiological reaction in their gut and they will cease feeding and eventually die. You may not see dead slugs or snails lying about as they usually crawl somewhere secluded to die, but you can rest assured that once the bait has been eaten they are no longer a threat to your yard or garden. Any leftover bait in the area will degrade back into the soil.
Suggested Uses: Use to bait and kill slugs and snails in backyards and gardens.
