Product Label

Ortho® Bug-Geta® Snail & Slug Killer2 kills a wide variety of slugs and snails. This product is a unique blend of the active ingredient sulfur with slug and snail bait additives. The bait will degrade and become a part of the soil, luring slugs and snails from their hiding places. Ingestion of the bait will cause them to cease feeding, become less mobile, and begin to die within one to three days. Dead slugs and snails may not be visible as they often crawl away to secluded places to die. Ortho® Bug-Geta® Snail & Slug Killer2 remains effective after rain or sprinkling for up to 3 weeks. It is for use around vegetables, fruit trees, and certain nuts as listed on the label, citrus, berries, ornamentals, shrubs, flowers, trees, lawns, gardens, and in greenhouses. Evening is the best time to apply the bait, as slugs and snails travel and feed mostly by night or early morning. Reapply as the bait is consumed or at least every three weeks. Apply more heavily if the infestation is severe, if the area is heavily watered, or after long periods of heavy rain. This product is OMRI Listed for organic use and can be used around pets and wildlife.

How to Use

  • VEGETABLES: Scatter the bait around the perimeter of the vegetable plot at approximately 0.5-1 lb per 1000 sq ft, or for smaller areas 0.15 oz (or 1 level teaspoon) per square yard, to provide protective "barrier" for slugs and snails entering the garden plot. If slugs or snails are inside the rows, then scatter the bait on the soil around the base of the plants between rows.
  • FRUITS AND NUTS INCLUDING CITRUS: For seedlings, spread the bait around the base of the stem. Apply at 0.15 oz (or 1 level teaspoon) per square yard in a 6-inch circular band around the base of the plants to be protected. For older trees, spread the bait around the base of the tree to intercept slugs and snails traveling to the trunk. For orchards, apply the bait at approximately 0.5-1 lb per 1000 sq ft using standard fertilizer granular spreaders.
  • BERRIES: Spread bait around the perimeter of the plot to intercept slips and snails migrating toward the berries. Use a rate of approximately 0.5-1 lb per 1000 sq ft, or for smaller areas 0.15 oz (or 1 level teaspoon) per sq yd, and scatter by hand or with granular spreaders. If slugs and snails are already in the plots, then carefully spread bait between the furrows near the base of the plants. For small plots, treat around the base of the plants to be protected. DO NOT spread over the entire area, but apply selectively.
  • OUTDOOR ORNAMENTALS: Scatter bait in a 6-inch circular band around the base of the plants to be protected at the rate of 0.15 oz (or 1 level teaspoon) per sq yd. Spread the bait between the ornamentals and grassy areas or around the perimeter of the plot at approximately 1 lb per 1000 sq ft to intercept slugs and snails traveling to the plot.
  • GREENHOUSES: Scatter bait in the plant pots or plants being damaged or around pots on greenhouse benches. Apply about 0.5 teaspoon per 9-in pot.
  • LAWNS: Scatter the bait at a rate of approximately 0.5-1 lb per 1000 sq ft, or for smaller areas 0.15 oz (or 1 level teaspoon) per sq yd. Use a granular spreader to scatter bait where the slugs or snails are observed.
