For the control of slugs and snails in agricultural and horticultural crops.


  • How attractive to slugs and snails is Metarex?  

99 out of 100 slugs can't be wrong. In a detailed study 100 slugs in individual test dishes were given a choice of Metarex or another bait from NZ. 99 chose Metarex as it is much more attractive. In another study they even chose Metarex over lettuce or carrots, some of their favourite foods.

Metarex is highly attractive and highly palatable.


  • How does Metarex perform? 

The secret of the top performance of Metarex is the combination of a very attractive and palatable bait that is highly durable in the field with a proven active ingredient. Metarex consistently out performs other baits in New Zealand.

Reliable, consistent control even under very high slug pressure.


  • How important is even spreading?   

Good ballistics and even spread are very important to ensure the best result. Slugs can detect food sources and be attracted over several centimeters.
