Sluxx HP is a high quality granular bait which is authorised for the control of slugs in amenity vegetation, edible crops and non edible crops.
Once digested, the active substance in Sluxx HP, interferes with calcium metabolism in the slugs stomach. This causes the slug to stop feeding, reduces mobility and the slugs die within 3-6 days. Feeding reduction is seen rapidly after application of Sluxx HP resulting in a reduction in crop or plant damage.
Sluxx HP granules have good resistance to weather and can remain effective even after 7 days and following rainfall.
Where to use
Sluxx HP has on label approval for use on the following crops:
- Amenity vegetation
- All edible crops
- All non edible crops
When to use
Sluxx HP should be applied directly after sowing or planting out. As slugs can be active all year round, it is best to apply Sluxx HP when plants are at their most susceptible to damage.
How to use
- Apply evenly for the best results as slugs are random feeders and encounter food sources by chance.
- Sluxx HP can be applied at a rate of up to 7 g/m2 for a maximum of four applications per year.
- If rain is heavy or continuous, or if slug damage continues to occur, a repeat treatment can be applied as early as seven days after application.
Chemical group: Ferric phosphate has a contact mode of action which relies on ingestion.
Bio-chemical mode of action: Ferric phosphate works by disrupting calcium metabolism in the slugs stomach which causes it to cease feeding.
Mobility: Ferric phosphate must be ingested by the slug to take effect.
Application timing: Ferric phosphate should be applied when slugs are active and plants are at a susceptible stage.
Resistance: There are no records of resistance to plant protection products containing ferric phosphate for slug control.
