Zinnias Are Being Eaten By Slugs

Question From: E. Murray - SOUTH CAROLINA
Q: Is there something I can spray on my zinnias that are being eaten by slugs?

A: There are no sprays I know of that are certified safe for use on plants to kill slugs. The products I recommend are Sluggo or Bonide Slug Magic. Both products contain water proof granules of iron phosphate that are scattered on the surface of the soil and are safe for use around animals and humans. They may also be used in edible gardens. Google how to rid the garden of slugs for other techniques you can use get rid of slugs. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
