Feed & Protect and Feed & Fortify are both dual function repellents that feed plants whilst deterring pests. They are both 100% safe for all wildlife, pets and humans and can’t be washed away in the rain like other slug products.

How Do Feed & Protect and Feed & Fortify Work?

 

Feed & Protect is a powder that is dissolved in water and applied to a plant’s foliage. The plant then absorbs the nutrients provided in the powder to improve growth. Whilst simultaneously making the plant distasteful to molluscs. The bitter taste that is created by Feed & Protect is so subtle that it cannot be detected by humans. Feed & Protect is a great alternative that will not harm slugs.

Feed & Fortify is made from diatomaceous earth and iron silicates. Diatomaceous earth is a coarse powder that feels like sand to humans but is extremely coarse to molluscs. When slugs or snails over the physical barrier, they receive lots of tiny lacerations that break down it’s slimy coat and cause it to dehydrate and die. The Iron silicates in the powder release vital micronutrients into the soil to improve plant growth.

Where Do Slugs Live?

 

Slugs live underground and this is where they spend most of their time. Whilst underground, they will digest any seedlings planted, lay eggs and feed on the roots of developed plants. Feed & Protect makes the whole plant distasteful to slugs, including the roots and foliage but does not affect the flavour of plants to humans.

How to Stop Slugs Eating Plants?

 

There are two methods for prevention, you can either deter them and keep them or you can kill them. Copper tape is often used as a deterrent for slugs but people have mixed results. Some say that if the slug really wants to get over it, they will! Feed & Protect makes plants distasteful to slugs and as a result, they won’t eat them making it the perfect deterrent.

Poisonous slug pellets are often used to kill slugs and whilst these are effective, they are very unsightly and can be fatal to pets, other wildlife and children. Feed & Fortify is a great way to kill slugs as it is 100% safe for pets, and children and acts as a dual product by feeding the plant whilst repelling slugs.

Best Way to Kill Slugs?

 

There are numerous ways of killing slugs. From poisonous slug pellets, to traps that are designed to lure in slugs, trap them and then kill them. Most methods are successful and will woek, however, many of them are unsightly and spoil the aesthetics of your land. Feed & Fortify is and effective slug killer that is made of diatomaceous earth. Diatomaceous earth is a natural product that is made up from fossilized crustaceans and sea creatures. To humans, pets and other wildlife, it just feels like sand, but to molluscs it is extremely rough and causes lots of lacerations to their wet skin. This essentially dehydrates them and causes them to die.
