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.
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.
