Fight Off the Invasion of Slugs with An Organic Slug Treatment!

When they start, slugs can be a real pain to get rid of and a constant threat throughout the gardening season. They spend most of their day living underground out of sight and then as soon as we draw the curtains, they very slowly, “charge” towards our beloved crops and begin wreaking havoc.

There are so many treatments to help in the fight against slugs and some very bizarre wives’ tales. From slug pellets and copper tape, to beer traps and salt. Some of these slug treatments work, but most of them are either dangerous or ineffective. There is nothing more frustrating when trying to control slugs than spending money on a product and thinking it will protect your plants, only to wake up the next morning and find your plants have been stripped of all their dignity!

Feed & Fortify is an innovative slug treatment that offers several benefits compared to traditional methods. Made using diatomaceous earth, Feed & Fortify is a dual purpose, organic slug treatment that both protects and feeds your plants. The unique properties of diatomaceous earth allow it to create an impenetrable, physical barrier around your plants whilst the inclusion of iron silicates improve soil fertility and increase a plants ability to take more nutrients on board.

The other benefit of using an organic slug treatment is safety and us brits, love health and safety! Slug pellets are the most commonly used slug treatment in the UK, but they can be incredibly dangerous to pets and children. Feed & Fortify poses no danger to pets, children or other wildlife so you can have peace of mind whilst protecting your plants.

What Is Diatomaceous Earth?

Diatomaceous earth is made from the skeletal remains of tiny, fossilised aquatic organisms called diatoms, typically found in and around river beds. Diatoms have a hard-outer shell that is made from silica and it is this that makes diatomaceous earth it’s unique slug control method. Silica is one of the hardest solids on earth and can be found in man made products such as glass and concrete. When used as a pest or slug treatment, it’s abrasive nature irritates the skin of molluscs and dehydrates them, causing them to shrivel up and die.

The Serious Bits

Whilst Feed & Fortify poses no danger to children or pets, if inhaled it can cause temporary irritation to the throat so we do advise that this is kept out of the reach of children.
