Product Details

Escar-Go! 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.

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 ( ½ 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.

This product worked great. Dayton OH had a VERY wet spring and summer and slugs where chewing through my garden faster then the plants could grow and reproducing at an alarming rate. This product protected the young seedling this spring and knocked back the slug population. Awesome product I highly recommend.

This stuff is so awesome. Did anyone notice it worked for 2 years! I didn't use it last year, but just now noticed some babies on my hosta after the rains. I'm ordering some more now!

Dinner Time!

I love ringing the dinner bell, for snails and slugs that is. They ruined my lilies, gerber daisies and hostas until I found Escargo. Now I sprinkle this product and no more pests to destroy my beautiful plants. It's amazing how they are attracted to this stuff, it is truly like ringing the dinner bell.I see empty shells everywhere, and my garden continues to bloom and thrive. I love this stuff!

The product Escar-go for slug and snail control works great. My garden was infested and everything would have been lost. They were on every vegetable chewing away. Great stuff!

Slug death pellets

This stuff is very effective. You need a lot though, because when it wears off its like the slugs were waiting at the gate and come rushing back. It is also more expensive here than in local stores.

U just gotta get this
Jan 8, 2008  |  By Blue
This is the most fantastic working product I have EVER gotten. When I first moved in here, gardening was a horror an slugs so bad they crawled up on the deck to get to potted plants. After just one day, I could already tell a difference and by the end of the summer not a slug in sight. I believe in organic growing but was ready to turn drastic till I saw this in the Gurneys catalog and tried it, fell in serious like with it and continue to order it faithfully as needed for the last 4 years. [I haven't told my neighbors what I use till this year- I enjoyed all the compliments-and jealousy of my fellow gardeners for a bit] Thank You Gurneys!

This product is wonderful. I have an organic garden but have been plagued by slugs, and none of the natural methods I've tried has worked... until now! It's not harmful to the enviormnent or to our furry friends and it actually works. I love it.
