ERADICATE is a snail and slug bait manufactured from patented technology developed by Australian scientists for Australian Conditions. ERADICATE works by interfering with the oxygen carrier so the snails and slugs die of lack of oxygen. With ERADICATE the snails and slugs move away from the bait back to their hiding place and die. They are not usually found dead around the bait. When a small amount of ERADICATE is consumed the snail or slug stops feeding.
