Safer® Brand Slug & Caterpillar Control Kit
Safer® Brand Caterpillar Killer w/B.t. Garden Dust
This pest control product is very effective in killing caterpillars and worms, including corn earworm, bollworm, armyworm, diamondback moth, green cloverworm, hornworms, loopers, melonworm, pickleworm, tomato fruitworm, tobacco budworm, salt marsh caterpillar, mimosa webworm, and imported cabbageworm!
The Safer® Brand Garden Dust with B.t. utilizes bacillus thuringiensis (var. kurstaki) which, once ingested by the wayward pest, kills them within a few days.
It is recommended that this product be applied late in the afternoon or on cloudy days since B.t. breaks down in the sunlight.
When the B.t. is ingested by the worm, it works as a gut rot poison that makes the worm stop feeding. The caterpillar or worm will stop feeding immediately and die within days of malnutrition.
Carefully read and follow all directions on the product's label. B.T. is very specific and only works on caterpillars and leaf feeding worms.
It is recommended with any pesticide to test plants for sensitivity to the product. Spray a small section of the plant in an inconspicuous area and wait 24 hours before full coverage.
Apply Safer Brand Garden Dust when pests are first noticed and repeat every 7-10 days or as necessary. Caterpillar egg hatch can occur over an extended period of time. Monitor treated areas for the prescence of newly hatched pests and retreat if necessary. Thorough leaf coverage is necessary for effective control. After ingesting a treated portion of the leaf, caterpillars stop feeding in a few hours and death occurs in a few days. Apply at a rate of 2 to 3 ounces per 50 feet of row planting.
Dr. T’s Nature Products® Slug & Snail Killer
Frustrated gardeners and homeowners can now win the battle against slugs and snails in their gardens and landscaping. These mollusks are a major agricultural pest in many areas of the world, and now, they have met their match!
Dr. T’s Nature Products® Slug & Snail Killer is a new, unique natural product in the control of destructive slugs and snails. Dr. T’s Nature Products® Slug & Snail Killer contains a powerful bait that is highly attractive to slugs and snails. In fact, independent field tests show garden snails and slugs prefer to eat the bait rather than live plants. Control for snails and slugs has never been easier!
The concentrated iron, sodium ferric EDTA, in Dr. T’s Nature Products® Slug & Snail Killer is also cost effective since less product is needed for snail and slug control than with iron phosphate-based baits.
When slugs and snails ingest this sodium ferric bait, it interferes with their digestive process and makes them stop eating immediately. After retreating to a safe hiding place, this bait kills slugs and snails within 3-6 days, making this both a powerful and easy-to-use slug and snail garden pest control product.
Since iron is naturally found in soil, this snail and slug bait will not persist in the environment like a synthetic formula.
This 1 lb. granular bait covers up to 1,700 square feet. Application of this slug and snail control product lasts up to 2 weeks.
