Tui Quash Slug & Snail Control
Have slugs and snails been munching on your carefully tended seedlings and plants, before you get a chance to enjoy them?
Tui Quash is a revolutionary low hazard formula which effectively controls slugs and snails preventing them from ruining your plants, and is safer to use around children, pets and wildlife than alternative metaldehyde or methiocarb based slug and snail baits. The active ingredient, Iron EDTA Complex, is also used as a food additive, a medicine to cure anaemia (iron deficiency) and as a trace element fertiliser. It is rated less toxic than table salt for people, yet is a potent stomach poison for slugs and snails.
Tui Quash lasts longer under damp conditions when slugs and snails are most active. When it breaks down, plants can utilise the iron chelate for healthy growth.
Use Tui Quash throughout your garden to protect your seedlings, potted plants, vegetables and flowers and enjoy a slug and snail free garden!

Tui Quash Slug & Snail Control reviews
I've been using Tui Quash for years now. I find it is very effective for protecting my plants from slugs and snails. It works very quickly as pests prefer it to the plants. I have peace of mind that it is not harming the birds or our pets. I love this product.
Works very well on my vege garden and safe to use around my dogs! I work as a veterinarian and metaldehyde poisoning is awful

Watermelons are a summer favourite! Vast and sprawling, they are grown the same way as their vege relatives, but the resulting flesh is much sweeter. With their delicious red flesh and glossy green rind, watermelons are a refreshing summer snack.
