For the control of Snails & Slugs in brassicas and ornamentals and other agricultural non-crop areas as per the Directions for Use. Also contains fipronil to control insects that may feed on the bait prior to consumption by Snails and Slugs.
Earwigs, Slaters and Millipedes
Highly mobile compared to Snails/Slugs, Earwigs, Slaters and Millipedes are able to encounter baits much more rapidly, and as there is no ill effect, they tend to consume other baits in their entirety before Snail/Slug encounter can occur. With snail/slug control reliant on the number of baits per square meter, the feeding behaviour of Earwigs, Slaters and Millipedes significantly reduces the efficacy of traditional Snail baiting program. The occurrence of these invertebrate species often coincides with Snail and Slug activity in Australian broad-acre cropping. Transcend® is highly palatable to these species, delivering a lethal dose at very small consumption rates. While this is advantageous to preventing crop damage, it also provides control whilst maintaining sufficient bait stations per m2 required for effective snail and slug control.
