Delicia® SLUGGOFF® Lentils are a highly palatable, rain-fast bait to control all species of slugs and snails in all crops and under all weather conditions. Yet at the same time it uses less chemical per hectare than other products.

Delicia® SLUGGOFF® achieves slug control and snail control in wet or dry conditions and during its development the following characteristics were considered:

  • Slugs and snails have small mouths and eat by rasping. A flat bait disc is easy for small mouths to eat.

  • Slug and snail density can be very high, therefore a large number of bait stations per/m2 are required.

  • The ideal bait needs to work well in moist conditions, which is the time of maximum slug and snail activity.

  • Fine tuning the formulation gave a palatable bait.

  • Doubling the dose rate of metaldehyde, from the usual 1.5% (w/w) found in most cheap pellet products, to 3% (w/w), made the bait effective at low application rates.

  • Incorporating the active ingredient throughout the pellet avoids the risk of photo degradation.

  • Adding a bittering agent increased pet safety.

  • The dust free formulation allows ready application while maximising operator safety.

Slugs and snails are most active in wet conditions and it is well known that traditional pellets work poorly in moist situations. Our European suppliers have developed a highly rain-fast formulation, that can be used at any time, wet or dry. Delicia® SLUGGOFF® Lentil bait is also long-lasting to give some residual crop protection after a single application. Usually only one treatment is required to obtain complete knockdown of slug and snail populations.

Delicia® SLUGGOFF® Lentil bait is spread very thinly and should not be applied in heaps. Coupled with the inclusion of a bittering agent, the risks to pets is reduced. However, it is important to avoid placing or storing large quantities where pets have access.

It is for these reasons Delicia® SLUGGOFF® Lentil bait is the biggest innovation in slug and snail management for many years.
