Slug and Snail Control that is:

Food Grade Bait
Child & Pet Safe
OK for Organic

The Snailer and Slug Saloon are organic, child and pet safe, alternatives to the poisonous snail and slug eradication products sold on the market today. They are an effective means of control for most snails and slugs, as well as earwigs and sow bugs. The bait is food grade material that is non-toxic, chemical free, derived from malted grain, yeast, and sugar. The bait is child and pet safe and not in any way harmful to the environment. The bait and traps are acceptable for organic farming.

Slug Saloon

Visit the Saloon every 3-4 days to empty the tray. Comes with enough bait for one month. Bait refills last 3 months. Made of tough, weather resistant polyethylene.

The Snailer was developed as an organic, child and pet safe alternative to the poisonous snail and slug eradication products sold on the market today. It is an effective means of control for all snails and slugs, especially the larger varieties found in various parts of North America.

FIELD TESTED The Snailer has been field tested extensively in snail and slug infested areas of the United States and has been found an effective safe method of pest control.

The Snailer and Slug Saloon baits are non-toxic, chemical free formulas derived from malted grain, yeast, and sugar developed in conjunction with the Colorado State University Entomology Department. The baits are child and pet safe and not in any way harmful to the environment.

ATTRACTS SNAILS. SLUGS, EARWIGS, SOWBUGS The Snailer and Slug Saloon baits attract snails, slugs, earwigs, and sowbugs to the trap where they cannot escape and where slugs are drowned.

SPECIAL TRAP DESIGN The Snailer and Slug Saloon traps are designed to keep rain or sprinkler water out of the trap and reduce dilution of the bait. The lid is designed to keep out debris and to keep evaporation to a minimum. Traps are constructed of high quality durable material and if used as instructed will give you many years of quality service.


1. Remove the lid.
2. Place the trap in area of heaviest snail or slug infestation. Traps may be placed on top of the soil or pushed into the soil to the lip of the tray.
3. Measure three (3) spoons full of the safe, non-toxic bait with the free spoon provided (or three (3) teaspoons full) into the tray
4. Slowly fill tray with water, stirring to mix thoroughly.
5. Snap lid onto tray.
6. Check every 2 to 3 days. Empty contents and repeat above.

A single trap will not totally eliminate snails or slugs from a large vegetable or flower garden. If you are trapping ten to fifteen snails or slugs per day in one trap, we recommend adding one or two additional Snailers to be placed in alternate rows. Both snails and slugs propagate in the wet, shady areas of lawns and gardens. The Snailer or Slug Saloon should, for best results, be placed in these areas. This placement also will keep evaporation at a minimum.

More and more long-term tests are showing pesticides cause negative effects on the health of families and household pets. Organic gardening is the only way to insure your family and pets will not ingest harmful pesticides.
