Slug and Snail Repellent
Worldwide research shows that copper, a soil trace element, is also an excellent repellent for slugs and snails and will kill when sprayed directly on them. Escar-Go creates an 'invisible' barrier when applied around plants, on tree trunks, pots or letter boxes that lasts for months, doesn't wash off and is completely safe around kids, pets and wildlife. Excellent results in protecting young seedlings can be obtained by spraying dry soil and allowing a film to develop over a few hours. 1L Ready-To-Use treats 10 m2 of soil; avoid spraying foliage. Active constituent: 2.8 grams per litre. Material Safety Data Sheet
Eradicate Snail and Slug Bait
This environmentally friendly Australian made snail and slug bait does not contain toxic methiocarb or metaldehyde, which are scheduled poisons known to be toxic to animals and birds.
  • Iron EDTA complex is the active ingredient; it is so benign that it is used in foodstuffs.
  • Iron breaks down to a soil nutrient that won't harm earthworms or mammals.
  • For safest use and longevity of the bait, we recommend using a trap.
  • 70 pellets per square metre is the recommended application rate or around 5 kg / ha; use as few pellets as possible as piles of bait can be a hazard to animals and birds.
  • STORE BOXES AWAY FROM DOGS: dogs may find the pellets attractive. If pellets are consumed in large quantities, there may be toxic effects.
  • 600 g treats 120 mē.

Slug and Snail Trap
A safe, effective and reusable snail trap which keeps bait pellets away from pets and moisture. Bury the trap so the rim is level with the ground, half-fill it with beer, which holds an irresistible attraction to slugs and snails, who will then happily drown! Also useful for earwigs if baited with soy sauce and a thin film of vegetable oil on top.

Copper Barrier Tape
Tests in the USA have shown copper banding out-performed all other methods for protection from slugs and snails. When the pest makes contact with the copper it causes a reaction similar to an electric shock, which repels them. It is non-toxic, very long-lasting, with no possible potential poisoning of other animals, pets or children. It is very effective used as individual collars around young seedlings or pots. An adhesive sticky back makes application to itself or to suitable surfaces easy or it can be attached with a staple gun to the edge of a raised wooden bed. The tape is 30 mm wide.
Organic Slug and Snail Bait BFA Organic
This Australian Certified Organic, environmentally friendly, effective, snail and slug bait does not contain any poisons known to be toxic to other animals. The active ingredient is pharmaceutical grade iron, 10g per kg elemental iron powder. The iron breaks down to a natural soil nutrient that won't harm earthworms or soil micro-organisms. Best use and longevity of the bait is with a lidded trap to shed water and allow for better observation and re-application. Can be used in areas where there are dogs, cats, birds, possums and other native fauna. Ready-to-use pelletised bait. Use 5 g per mē, 1 kg treats 200 mē Material Safety Data Sheet
