Biogrow - Ferramol - 500ml
Natural Snail and Slug Bait
Ferramol is an innovative organic molluscicide that protects plants effectively, without harming beneficial insects and the surrounding environment. Ferramol is also user friendly when it comes to handling and application. The active ingredient contained in Ferramol is iron phosphate – a substance that occurs naturally in the soil.
Ferramol has been found to be compatible with most commonly used molluscicides. Physical compatibility should first be checked by using the current proportion of Ferramol and other products in a small test jar. Growers should then test tank mix combinations for phytotoxicity on a sample of plants or crops prior to use. Do not apply in temperatures above 30ºC.
Do not eat, drink or smoke while applying Ferramol. Wash with soap and water after handling Ferramol. Do not contaminate water, food or feed by disposal and do not re-use container. Destroy empty container and dispose of in a safe way.
Ferramol is harmful if swallowed and contact with eyes, skin and clothing should be avoided. Ferramol should be kept out of reach of children and uninformed persons. Store Ferramol in its original container, in a cool, dry place, away from food and animal feed.
Use the lower recommended dosage rate as a preventative measure. Spray crops before wet and humid conditions occur, in order to protect your foliage from fungal infections. Can also be used as a curative measure at the higher dosage rate.
How to apply
The pellets should be scattered on the soil around or near the plants to be protected. Do not place in piles. If the ground is dry, wet it before applying the bait. The soil should be moist, but with little or no standing water. Reapply as the bait is consumed, or at least every 3 weeks. Apply more regularly if the area is heavily watered or after heavy periods of rain.
5g or approx 1 level teaspoon per square meter.
When to apply
Evening is the best time to apply the bait, as slugs and snails travel and feed mostly at night or in the early morning.
