Ready-to-use granular slug bait


FERREX is a ready-to-use slug bait effective against slugs and snails. The active ingredient, iron (III) phosphate, contained in FERREX leads to cellular alterations in the goiter and in the axillary nodes. Slugs stop feeding shortly after the bait intake and retreat in their hideouts in the soil, where they die within a couple of days. This allows to avoid not only direct damage, but also indirect damage arising from the slug decomposition on the crop. The special and original formulation in lentils of FERREX allows the ingestion also by the smaller slugs, making the treatment efficient towards slugs hardly controllable with different formulations.
