I discovered Sluggo about 8 years ago, when I purchased a 15 pound bag online. It cost me a little over $70.00, and it was worth every penny ! I just now had to reorder, and ordered this 2.5 pound shaker canister. I also have dogs, and, it is completely safe. I can't say this loud enough, I HATE SLUGS ! They are so gross ! Anyway, we really enjoy our yard, and the slugs made it just yucky. Well, sprinkle a little sluggo around, just before it rains (and, just before dark, so birds don't eat it... they think it's food, although, it doesn't seems to hurt them, but, you don't want to lose your Sluggo...lol), and, wait a few weeks later, and do it again... that's all you have to do ! We can go months and months and not see a slug ! When we do, we know it's time to sprinkle a little more around. Now we just have to treat the edges of our yard to keep slugs from coming in from other yards. Our yard is basically slug free. Sluggo really works.

Even if you're not an organic gardener, you don't want to mess around with the old-style metaldehyde baits like Corry's or Deadline, which in very small quantities can cause permanent nerve damage or death to anything with a backbone (that's us!).

Especially since the organic stuff works so well! Sluggo's made of iron phosphate, a food-grade product that is safe to use around pets and in your veggie garden.

It doesn't kill on contact, but the snails and slugs stop eating right away, so even though you won't see piles of dead snails like with the other kind, you can rest assured it is working.
I use Sluggo around new veggie starts, hostas and other snail-attracting plants, and in my container plantings. It's important to hide the stuff in moist, shady areas that snails and slugs actually hide in, and don't pile it, as it can mold that way and also be attractive to pets or kids when piled up.

As for safety, I've read internet reports about people's dogs and chickens even eating some of it, to no ill effect. I'd be careful around pets or kids, because this is iron, and iron poisoning is no small thing, but when compared to the alternatives? This is the clear winner in my book.

The old metaldehyde baits are currently the number one poisoning agent of dogs in California, and metaldehyde is most harmful to humans in dust formulations. Considering so many brands have it as a sawdust-style, that's no good. And the liquid metaldehyde baits can get on animal's paws, and when they groom themselves, they ingest it. I'll stick with Sluggo.

This variety does NOT have spinosad - that's the one with insect control as well - so you're in good shape to use it without harming bees or waterways.

This is a product that I can recommend with confidence. I had tried a variety of products and gadgets to solve my slug problem to no avail The beer pans was expensive, wasteful, messy and ineffective. Other snail killers were dangerous to use around my dog. I was so tired of the slugs destroying my daylilies and hostas, that I overcame my revulsion and would pick them off my hand at night. I quickly discovered that sleep would be a thing of the past if I expected to defeat the little blighters. But then I found Sluggo and my problem was solved. Apparently the slugs love this product, eat it, then can't eat anymore, and quickly die of starvation. Best of all, it's safe to use around pets and children. Now the blooms of my daylilies are bite free and the foliage of my hostas are beautiful. Thank you Sluggo!!

Very effective product and safe when pets and small children are around. I have over 60 varieties of hosta (107 plants) and this product has effectively protected them for the past three years.

Frankly, I like the old Bug-Geta snail bait better. This is the first I have tried this organic Sluggo. Generally, I try to buy organic whenever possible. And since my neighbors all have small dogs, I was interested in a product that wouldnt harm them. So that I appreciate.

But the product itself does weird things in the flower beds. At first I didnt know what it was, since when it melted it looked like white mold. The first batch I removed, then later figured out that was the melted Sluggo. It seems that I have to put it out more often, like it doesnt last as long as the bad kind of snail bait. And I am not so sure my plants like it. I have it in flower pots, and around a large potted lemon tree. One flower plant instantly croaked.

So it costs more, doesnt last as long, looks ugly and weird, doesnt make my plants happy, but its organic and wont hurt pets... so its better, right?

This is the second time in 4 years that we have had a snail infestation & have used Sluggo to eradicate the problem. About 5 days after applying we went from seeing them everywhere to having a hard time finding a single live one. Love the fact that our Shih-Tzus were never in any danger if they accidently ate some & it is ultimately good for the soil. Great product!

I put out two pounds of sluggo to discover that mice hoard the pellets. The pellets would dissapear overnight and I thought they disolved in the rain. One day I uncoverd a moiuse nest and found about a pound of sluggo pellets hoarded in the nest. Its a waste of money for those that live on the edge of a forest.
