Application Instructions

Scatter the bait granules on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. For broadcast application, use standard broadcast spreaders. For row application, use standard granular spreaders. Apply higher rates if the infestation is severe or if the area is heavily watered or after long periods of heavy rain. Reapply as the bait is consumed or at least every 2 to 4 weeks.

Do not apply more than 3 times in any 30-day period. Do not place in piles. Bug‑N‑Sluggo works best when soil is moist but with little or no standing water.
