protects lettuce, tomatoes, chard, cabbage, squash, corn and other vegetables from slug
and snail damage. For use around fruit trees, citrus, berries, ornamentals, shrubs, flowers, trees,
lawns, gardens and in greenhouses.
Escar-Go! is a unique blend of an iron phosphate
active ingredient, originating from
soil, with slug and snail bait additives. It is
used as an ingredient in fertilizers. The Escar-Go! that
is not ingested by snails and slugs will degrade and
become a part of the soil.c
Escar-Go! is ingested by slugs and snails when they
travel from their hiding places to plants. Ingestion,
even in small amounts, will cause them to cease feeding.
This physiological effect of the bait gives immediate
protection to the plants even though the slugs
and snails may remain in the area. After eating the
bait, the slugs and snails cease feeding, become less
mobile and begin to die within three to six days. Dead
slugs and snails may not be visible as they often crawl
away to secluded places to die. Plant protection will
be observed in the decrease in plant damage.
Escar-Go! is effective against a wide variety of
slugs and snails and will give protection to home
lawns, gardens, greenhouses, outdoor ornamentals,
vegetable gardens, fruits, berries, citrus and crop
plants. The bait can be scattered on the lawn or on
the soil around any vegetable plants, flowers or fruit
trees or bushes to be protected. Any that isn’t eaten
will degrade and become part of your garden soil.
Naturally, you don’t have to worry about secondary
Poisoning of pets or wildlife.
More About Escar-Go!...
Evening is the best time to apply Escar-Go! because slugs and snails travel and feed mostly at night or in the early morning. Young garden seedlings and transplants are among their favorite meals, so they are particularly vulnerable. Healthy, promising seedlings can vanish overnight, and by the time you figure out what happened, the culprits are gone. Apply Escar-Go! particularly in damp places around beans, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, celery and squash and in other areas favored by snails and slugs: rockeries, hedges, dichondra lawns, home citrus groves, ivy and other ground covers, where they obtain shelter by day.
Easy to Use!
Scatter Escar-Go! granules on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. If the soil is dry, wet it before applying. Apply evenly at about 1 lb per 1000 to 2000 sq ft ( ˝ to 1 teaspoon per square yard)
Reapply when you see that the bait has been consumed, or at least every 2 weeks. Apply more heavily if the infestation is severe, if the area is heavily watered or after long periods of heavy rain.
Escar-Go! protects lettuce, tomatoes, chard, cabbage, squash, corn and other vegetables from slug and snail damage. May also be used in the home orchard, in the berry patch, around hostas and other ornamentals and on lawns. In home greenhouses, may be applied to the soil in plant pots or around greenhouse benches.
