Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What happens if I apply too much product?

A: You cannot overdose your plants with Slugzilla, it is fully organic and helps to boost your plants immune system.

Q: How does it work?

A: it deters on contact, the natural properties repel slugs and snails as they touch it, making it very unappetising to eat.

Q: Can I use it as a fertiliser on other plants that do not need protecting from slugs and snails?

A: Yes, the fertiliser element comes from the finest quality Hebridean liquid seaweed fertiliser, this has been specifically sourced for its purity and sustainability, also Scotland has some of the cleanest and purest waters of the UK so we find the quality of the seaweed is exceptional. This delivers an array of nutrients and bio stimulants to all plants helping to boost their immune system.

Q: How long does it last?

A: Slugzilla will remain active on your plants until you wash it off by watering heavily or by rain. On average we found without rain it will actively deter them from between 9-13 days.

Q: Do you have retail outlets?

A: We don’t have a dedicated shop, but we do have some organic focused partnerships with small garden centres and outlets that share our vision to reduce the amount of toxic pest control systems, presently these are mostly located in Hampshire and Scotland. We are always looking for more outlets that are keen to stock Slugzilla, so if you know of one please ask them to get in touch.

Q: What packaging do you use?

A: We send Slugzilla out to you in fully recyclable PTFE bottles, these can easily be recycled through your local recycling services, they are posted out to you in Green jiffy bags, which have been specifically chosen as they have a paper kraft outer with a 100% recycled paper fibre lining, these padded envelopes are made from recycled material and are 100% recyclable.

Q: How will the product be sent to me?

A: We prefer to send via Royal Mail 2nd class post as this is an established and reliable courier with an established reputation. We found 2nd class post relied more on rail transport which we preferred as it uses a smaller carbon footprint. 

Q:Who are we?

A: We’re a couple of marine biologists, horticulturalists and environmental enthusiasts. We explore the environment in diverse geographic locations, studying ecological habitats to identify useful natural plant extracts.

Our network of keen gardeners, scientists, geographers and allotment growers provide useful intelligence and observations about the successes of Slugzilla and what we can improve on.
