Properties and activity
To ensure a good kill, as with any slug pellet, a number of factors are important. Having the sufficient number of baiting points/m2, coupled with the optimum concentration of the active substance and a good quality pellet, that is both attractive for the slug to eat and capable of being spread to the
desired width are essential. This product delivers on all these requirements.
7kg/ha = 47 Pellets/m2
11.7 kg/ha = 78 Pellets/m2
On average 40 pellets/m2 are considered adequate. In exceptional cases higher numbers may be required. Sufficient baiting points are achieved with this product, even when used at 7kg/ha.
