I have wondered about Sluggo too. Almost purchased some Sluggo Plus so now I am so glad I did not. Too many areas show less bees and my yard does have a decent supply coming in. I appreciate this information.

I will stick with my daily walks... turning over boards and collecting them for the birds... any leftover in feeders get a dose of salt and trashed.

That which I Will to happen in truth, I will put action behind to achieve and the Lord will help me if I ask IN BELIEF!

I've used crushed eggshellls with great results - plus they add calcium to the soil!

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Thank you for that info. I didn't know about bees. I will just use sluggo. We need our bees. Jackie

I use regular sluggo to get rid of slugs and snails. It's pretty effective and totally nontoxic. I do not, however, use Sluggo Plus because I keep bees and the active ingredient, Spinosad, is highly toxic to bees.

Hi, I was just wondering if any fellow gardeners use sluggo plus, It is suppose to be the safe way to get rid of snails, slugs, pill bugs. Do any of you use this product? Jackie
