Pound for pound, DEADLINE® M-Ps™ (mini-pellets) control more slugs and snails than any other leading pellet bait. Metaldehyde, the active ingredient in DEADLINE, sets the standard for effective slug and snail control in field, fruit and vegetable crops. DEADLINE M-Ps (four percent metaldehyde) are ideal for use in open field applications. Colored with a blue dye for high visibility by applicators to help monitor coverage and consumption levels. DEADLINE M-Ps are rain fast and can withstand as much as six inches of rain over a two week period, unlike competitive baits that dissolve and fall apart in as little as one inch of rain. DEADLINE M-Ps not only feature five times as many bait particles for increased points of contact as compared to regular-sized pellets, also contain the exclusive DB27 attractant system, which lures slugs and snails toward the bait and away from the crop.
