GENERAL INFORMATION

Dawn is a highly effective slug and snail killer. The granular pellet contains iron which is bound into a

complex. Once slugs and snails have fed on the pellet, the iron is released from its bound form in the

gut, and is uniquely toxic to slugs and snails. As Dawn does not work through paralysis, slugs and

snails move away after feeding. There may therefore be no dead slugs or snails visible after use.

Dawn can be used around seedlings or established plants in agriculture and horticulture.

The small size of the bait pellet granules allows for more granules to be placed per square metre

compared to coarse baits. This greatly increases the chance for slugs and snails to encounter the

baits.

Dawn is safe to use, and is safe around animals, pets and birds. It does not harm earthworms.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Broadcast: Apply 15 kg/ha. Use Dawn before, during or after sowing.

Apply Dawn evenly over the ground surface. For band application along rows, apply as close as

possible to the plants.

Application is best made after rain or irrigation when slugs and snails become more active.

Drilling with seed: Use 10 kg/ha . Apply through the granule applicator hopper or mixed in with the

seed. Only use where the drill leaves an open slot allowing slugs access to the baits. Otherwise

broadcast the baits as above.

WARRANTY

Dawn is manufactured to meet the formulated specification and registration requirements.

The user of this product bears the risk for damage resulting from factors beyond the manufacturer’s control. The
