Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maryif Works, but grows strange mold / fungus??
I wish I'd have found & used this product sooner before I lost a whole bed of calla lilies to soft rot which entered the plants through the open wounds the snails & slugs created :( It did however work well to eradicate the snails & slugs since application. That said, I have noticed in some of my pots a strange white hairy mold or fungus growing all over the pellets & the top of the soil directly where the pellets are.. Shortly after its appearance several of my shade loving specimens started showing signs of disease/rot at the base of stems & flower buds. Does anyone know why this slugo seems to be growing this strange white hairy mold / fungus?? None of the plants in these pots had EVER had any disease or rot like this in the 2+ years since they were planted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by p0nyg1rl SLUGGO is the best
Sluggo is responsible for saving my sisters high dollar shopping channel lily's. I had tried the beer in the lid...buggers crawled in got drunk and back out! I am a night owl but prefer not to be hunting with salt all night. Cisco said to try sluggo as there were kids and cats. Sprinkle the bait as directed. Now i took it one step further, if you no someone with kids that drink apple juice and toss the half gallon clear jugs out just cut the bottom out and take off the lid, then place container over top of the favorite plant, wait till your plant outgrows it's mini greenhouse and save containers for next year. this way your slugs should be under control. As for the mold issue maybe sprinkled to much, I would contact the company.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by hatesluggo Molds and kills plants
This product works great for eradicating slugs.
However, when exposed to moisture, the pellets turn into fungus blooms that will kill any plants growing amongst the moldy pellets.
So now my plants are dying from exposure to mold/fungus instead of being eaten by slugs.

Excellent product to eliminate snails and slugs. Had a bad infestation of snails destroying potato vines. Two small applications of Sluggo and problem eliminated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by waldopg3 Unbelievable how well this works
I had slugs maybe 20 to 40 a night at my front door. Sometimes they were on the door & once one got inside. I put this out knowing the label said it takes a week to work. I could even put a little piece in front of a slug & it would take to it like a baby to a bottle. 2 days later no more slugs. Product has no odor. This bottle is enough to last me the rest of my life. Great buy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gigi For this beginner, It works!
I was getting frustrated with snails and slugs eating everything in my garden, except the weeds. Tried some homemade and organic options, but the infestation was too much for me to handle. I just got tired of seeing my precious plants destroyed! Not to mention all the hours of hard work and love GONE... in a slimy moment.
Read about SLUGGO mentioned from a garden blog after hours and hours of internet research. Thought, "Hey why not? Seems the least destructive and toxic way to go."
So off to Home Depot website I go and bought it.
Read the instructions, applied, and within a few days saw fewer snails and slugs. It even rained at some point, and the stuff still worked! Note I said fewer, it does not completely eradicate them the instant you apply to your garden. But wow, what a difference!
Definitely a recommendation! Just take care around pets. It says safe, but I still kept my puppy away from the treated areas, just in case.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Victoria It works!
This stuff works. It is most upsetting to see your little seedlings nibbled to death -- esp. when you've been nursing them along for a while. The deciding factor was that it is "organic" -- doesn't harm my kitty or the birds or anything else -- just the slugs. My bush beans and rapini are coming right along!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gardenerLisa Works and is ok for pets
This is the only slug control product I use - it really works and is safe to use - no nasty stuff in it, so ok around my pets and organic garden. Only thing that has controlled my slug problem. Remember to sprinkle more around after it rains.
