DEFRA has given retailers until the 30th June to stop selling metaldehyde pesticide (blue pellets), due to fears over its impact on wildlife and the environment. SlugLess offers a safe effective alternative by creating a physical barrier
SlugLess® Pet Safe, Spiky Slug & Snail Deterrent is made from Sustainable, Organic British Straw. As well as helping to deter Slugs & Snails, due to the spiky, dry surface it creates, it also Holds Moisture, Adds Nutrients & Suppresses Weeds.
It comes in clean, easy to use pellets which are 100% Wildlife Friendly & contain NO chemicals or additives. SlugLess has a pleasant earthy odour (so will not attract your dog) and is highly decorative. It will comfortably last a season, eventually biodegrading into the soil.
SlugLess® holds up to 6x moisture!
SlugLess holds up to 6x its weight in moisture; reducing the need for watering & maintaining a dry environment around plants which further deters slugs.
How SlugLess Works
SlugLess® is made from 100% Organic British Straw which has had no fertiliser or chemicals applied. Straw is a sustainable by-product of agriculture & is completely carbon neutral, regrowing annually reabsorbing carbon released from the biodegrading of the previous years crop.
Our unique production process creates a clean, easy to use pellet which expands (when wet) to create a dry, spiky surface which irritates and desiccates slugs & snails that try to cross it. Slugs & Snails quickly learn to avoid areas covered by SlugLess.
Simply water the plant then apply SlugLess pellets one layer thick in a wide area surrounding the plant (at least 5 inches out from the plant leaves).
Wet the pellets (or let the rain do it for you).
SlugLess pellets will expand up to 4 times their initial volume & can be raked to cover any gaps that have not been covered.
SlugLess will eventually create a dry, protective crust which will retains moisture & reduce the need for watering & weeding. Less watering also maintains a dry environment around plants which further deters slugs.
It is pH neutral & will bio-degrade over the season slowly releasing organic nutrients & humus back into the soil.
SlugLess offers a safe, clean & easy way to deter slugs & snails. It is kind to the environment & wildlife.
SlugLess is highly decorative with an earth tone colour (which will darken over time). Unlike wool pellets it has a clean, pleasant, earthy odour and is unattractive to dogs and other animals wishing to mask there scent.
SlugLess comes in a clean convenient pellet form, packaged in eco-friendly 3.5L recycled cardboard boxes or 10L & 30L resealable bags. It can be stored indefinitely in the dry.
