Glad to hear the Deadline pellets are working out good for you.
If slugs and snails are in the area, they won't stop eating the pellets util their dead. I have seen many huge slugs(3\" long) that ate so much that they turned a bright blue color, the same color as the pellets.
Another great thing about Deadline pellets, is that it can withstand up to seven inches of rain without falling apart. I know when you open the bag it smells kind of like Crayon's. I wonder if the pellets are held together with a waxy kind of stuff found in Crayons.
One thing I do know, is that I have killed Thousands of slugs with Deadline MP's. I would'nt waste my money on any other brand.
And you only need 3-5 pellets per sq ft. Once you have them under control, you can use less pellets per sq ft.
It wont be long before the seedlings start coming up by the hundreds, then thousands each day.
We had 4\" of snow on Monday and 2\" last night. 12\" total on the ground. So it will be awhile before my plants start coming up. Last year they started about April 20. But normaly it's mid May when they start emerging.
I feel silly. It's been in the 70's here the last three days, and I started belly-aching because it's back down in the 40's. I know folks up in your geographic area have had some rough weather here recently, so I have to keep telling myself to just be grateful it's above freezing here at home.
