Apply Slug Bait Around Flowers and Vegetables
Slugs and snails are plentiful in our moist climate and can quickly devour newly planted flowers and vegetables. They hide in the soil during the daytime and feed at night. Apply slug bait around perennials and when planting new annuals and vegetables. Baits containing metaldehyde are the cheapest. Baits which contain iron phosphate are safe to use around pets and wildlife. Bait which is not eaten by slugs and snails will degrade and become part of the soil. Deadline is another very effective product for snail and slug control.
