eco-shield Organic Snail & Slug Killer

eco-shield is an effective, Registered Organic molluscicide containing iron powder formulation which is highly palatable to snails, slugs and slaters. Unlike methiocarb and metaldehyde snail baits, which are toxic to a wide range of animals, eco-shield does not contain scheduled poisons. This makes eco-shield more suitable for use in public spaces and other areas where the risk of bait consumption by non-target animals is higher.

Active Constituent: 10 g/kg Iron powder

eco-shield® is a bait so slugs, snails and slaters need to come into contact with it and consume it. It is important that coverage is uniform within the crop for contact to take place and the bait remains intact long enough in the field for effective control. eco-shield® pellets are formulated to be both very attractive to snails, slugs and slaters but also rainfast enough to last for extended wet weather periods. When iron powder is consumed the pests quickly leave the area to die so you will not see carcasses on the ground. For maximum effectiveness, eco-shield is best applied during autumn.
