Sluxx HP

Sluxx HP is a granular bait formulation containing 29.7 g/kg (2.97% w/w) ferric phosphate. 

Sluxx HP formulation is the culmination of 10 years field experience and continuous product development. Growers and Agronomists have confidence in its performance and have made it the bestselling ferric phosphate pellet in the UK market. Our quality ferric phosphate formulation has a number of significant benefits which differentiates it from other pellets in the market and carries the Ferric Field Technology logo    

With excellent anti-moulding properties, the deep blue pellet is highly efficacious against all relevant slug species. The bait technology used in Sluxx HP has a novel mode of action, feeding ceases immediately following consumption of the bait. Slugs retreat underground to die, often there will not be any evidence of dead slugs so it is more effective to monitor the level of crop damage.
