Slug Pellets

Slug pellets come in three types: metaldehyde, ferric phosphate and wool. Both the most effective, and most cost effective solution on the market, metaldehyde pellets only need to be applied thinly and will poison the slug, causing it to dehydrate and die. Likewise ferric phosphate will also kill the slug, but is organic and non-toxic to wildlife and pets. Also organic, wool pellets constitute a fantastic fertiliser and act to irritate the slug's feet, working as a deterrent.
