Says it's safe for animals and kids.
There are a number of different slug remedies around. I think everyone else has scared their slugs and snails into my garden! This comes in a large container and seems to indicate that you don't need much. It is clean and simple to use and the birds have ignored them so far. There are clear instructions on use, cstorage and safe disposal of container. I wanted something less destructive than my local garden shop recommended. This is less obvious, too, it's green.
It works very well
Noticed an immediate impact in terms of reduction of snail and slug population. I like the fact that it is natural, not a chemical pesticide. Not sure about the impact on the hedgehogs the other person is referring too, but I live in a walled urban garden, so that issue would not be applicable to me.
Harms hedgehogs, better off with wool pellets
These slug pellets cause too much harm to other wildlife, especially hedgehogs. The phosphates cause calcium to leach out of the hedgehogs bones resulting in metabolic bone disease. It cripples them and causes them immense pain. It's the same reason you shouldn't feed them mealworms or sunflower hearts. I wish Ocado would stock the wool pellets instead. Wont kill hedgehogs or other wildlife and forms a protective mat after only a couple of applications.
Good but squirrels ate the pellets!
The slug situation did improve, but the squirrels seem to come down and eat the pellets like sweets! Did them no harm.
Don't buy other slug pellets!
Organic, effective and only kills slugs & snails - not hedgehogs & birds!! Safe for use on veg plot. Only buy this brand!- Ocado thank you so much for selling but please keep in stock!!
