Ferroxx® is an iron-based bait that is effective against a wide variety of slug and snail species and is exempt from the requirement for a tolerance when used as a molluscicide in or on all food commodities. It protects citrus, artichokes, nursery stock, berries, lawns, gardens, greenhouses, outdoor ornamentals, vegetable gardens, fruits, and grass grown for seed. Ferroxx® can be used in areas where pets and wildlife protection are a concern. When slugs and snails ingest the pellets, even in small amounts, they stop feeding and die, leaving no slime trails with no cleanup necessary; dead slugs and snails may not be visible. The physiological effect of the bait gives immediate protection to crops. The non-dusty, small uniform pellet allows for easy application through spreading equipment and provides the maximum number of feeding points/acre. Ferroxx® is easy to apply and remains effective under varying weather and environmental conditions. Available in beige and blue.
