Can I spray Hi-Yield 38-Plus Insect Control 38% Permethrin on my hostas to keep slugs away?

Answer:

Hi-Yield 38-Plus Insect Control 38% Permethrin is not labeled to treat slugs. Slugs put down a continuous layer of mucus which makes it impossible for dried deposits of insecticide sprays to reach the actual slug. You will need to use a slug bait such as Sluggo Plus or Hi-Yield Improved Slug and Snail Bait to control the slugs.
