Re: sluggo/escar-go

Interesting thought David, but I wouldn't think so because Sluggos
ingredient is Iron phosphate , not a chemical compound from Dow., and it
breaks down into a natural healthy substance .I have been using it since it
came out and it still works. Most chemicals will cause a eventual tolerance
because they disturb the normal rhythm and are not found naturally.
