Metarex availability for Slug control #219511

Asked November 05, 2014, 2:35 PM EST

In your articles you mention that Metarex (Australia) cereal based mini pellets gave best performance in the northwest for slug control. I can find no local distributor of the product or source. Where can I purchase Metarex?

Multnomah County Oregon

Expert Response

Thank your for your question to Ask an Expert.

Metarex is a slug bait intended for commercial agriculture and is not available at nurseries or garden centers.

The active ingredient is metaldahyde, which is available in numerous products for home gardeners.  Products with this active ingredient are very effective at controlling slugs and snails.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
