warning, needs refrigeration

      Comments about Slug Guard:

      This arrived when we were out of town. It needs refrigeration if not used immediately, so I have probably wasted my money. I did apply it, but time will tell if it has any effect on slugs

        Last year I had many slugs. Nothing would get rid of them. This year after using slug guard, I have'nt seen a single slug or snail eating in the garden

            Sprayed for root maggots and it worked very effectively! Changed the atmosphere in our greenhouse even. Will be buying it again in Spring.

              After spending a small fortune on slug bait and beer, after picking hundreds of slugs off our plants I tried this product. I applied it 6 weeks ago and it worked. Thank you!!

                  I was tired of pouring beer into my slug traps, only to find the live slugs underneath the traps. This was amazing and easy. Have not seen one slug all summer.

                    Comments about Slug Guard:

                    This is the third year that I have used this product. There is a very noticeable decrease in the damage from slugs to my hosta shade garden. One application is all it takes!

                      It's hard to rate something if you don't know how to use it. There are no instructions as to the application rate except that they tell you it covers 2000 sq ft

                        This was a total waste of money. I bought 3 pkgs to cover a large backyard and I saw no decrease in the slug population at all.

                        • Slugs and snails

                        Comments about Slug Guard:

                        I had a terrible infestation of snails over the last few years. I was picking off hundreds daily! I took a chance on this product and it really worked. I used it last fall and saw a marked reduction in snails, and then used it again this spring and my garden is virtually snail free. Yeah! My flowers and vegetables are so happy and so am I.
                        You do need to use the product right away since the nematodes are live when delivered, but the directions were easy to follow and within days, the effects were obvious. Thank you!
