How to Use Slug Gone
Slug Gone pure wool slug pellets are manufactured from the fleece of sheep. Wool fibres have very fine scales with small barbs on the tip called cuticle cells. These cause wool fibres to felt and matt together. Wool fibres are very hygroscopic and this, plus the sand and grit already in the compound and the potassium salts from the sweat glands of the sheep, absorbs some of the slime from the slug’s foot to cause irritation, resulting in the slug finding easier feeding methods.
Not only do the slug pellets keep Slugs and Snails at bay, the pellets are also a good mix and balance for growing plants, fruit and vegetables. The pellets hold twice their own weight in water so they act as an excellent mulch, a weed suppressant, a soil conditioner and slow release fertiliser.
Slug Gone is 100% natural, ideal for organic gardening and is safe for children, animals and garden wildlife.
