Experts at weed, feed and control brand Neudorff are predicting nothing less than a slug explosion in the coming weeks, with billions hatching and wreaking havoc in our gardens.
“The recent warm spell over the Easter weekend combined with the forecasted wet weather will provide the perfect conditions for adult and newly hatched slugs, with the latter looking to feed their ferocious appetites and will head straight for the tender foliage of young plants. We are advising gardeners to be prepared with slug controls to ensure their hard work in the garden is preserved,” said Jude Beharall from Neudorff.
To control these hungry pests without harming other beneficial wildlife such as birds and hedgehogs apply Neudorff’s Sluggo® Slug & Snail Killer. The effective formula is approved for organic use by the Organic Farmers & Growers Association and stops slugs eating quickly, causing them to retreat under the soil where they die, leaving your garden free of dead slugs, snails and slime trails.
Sluggo’s rain resistant pellets are metaldehyde free* and contain the active ingredient Iron-III-Phosphate, which occurs naturally in the environment. The pellets are biodegradable and any that remain uneaten will convert into iron and phosphate in the soil, delivering added nutrients to plants. Edible plants can be harvested immediately after using.
Sluggo® can be found at garden centres across the UK or online priced at GBP6.99 for a 1kg plastic-free recyclable box.
