Slugs


Thought you guys might find this interesting.

* Sluggo: The first completely natural substance to control slugs,
this offers an additional benefit. It's made of iron phosphate, a
fertilizer ingredient that can help plants grow.  Spread it around
the base of plants that you know will sustain major slug damage.
Slugs eat it, stop feeding and die, even if they ingest a very
small amount. I consider this "cutting edge" because it replaces
metaldehyde, a very toxic material spread in pellets or a molasses
paste that was often eaten by pets. Sluggo will be available at
garden centers in the spring. The distributor's Web site is
www.montereylawngarden.com.
