I have a HUGE slug problem. Will this kill the slugs? How long will it keep killing?

Slugs are eating EVERYTHING. My cats are even bringing them in the house because when they walk threw the grass they stick to there fur!!!


Diatomaceous Earth 85% is labeled for slugs and should do a great job eliminating them when used according to the product label. The dust will need to be reapplied if it gets washed away or covered with other debris. According to the product label "Lightly coat a thin layer of Natural -Guard Craw ling Insect Control in areas where these insects are found such as patios, outdoor sills, window and door frames. Dust around foundations, along ant trails and around sewer pipes and drains." If you would like a product you can use out in the yard Hi Yield Slug and Snail bait or Sluggo Plus would both be good choices.
