Metarex is a 4% metaldehyde slug bait manufactured to the highest of standards using exclusive, wet-process technology, which provides it with superior weatherability, uniformity, palatability, and control. This reduced rate technology makes it possible for Metarex to deliver numerous, unique benefits to growers, all while requiring usage rates nearly half those of competitive products.
Outlasts – introduces reduced rate technology with improved effectiveness for longer treatment intervals using less product.
High Pellet count per pound – for superior coverage and maximum control.
Maximum baiting points – Slugs have to travel less to each the bait - especially less-mobile juvenile snails and slugs.
Highest quality – food-grade ingredients and our unique manufacturing process promotes maximum feeding.
Maximum palatability – preferred by slugs 3-to-1 over vegetables (fresh carrots & lettuce).
Resists heavy watering – holding their shape longer than competitive pellets.
Best Uniformity (no dust) – Consistent size enables better flow, less waste, easier application, and easy clean-up.
Best Bait for use “At-planting”, in-the-furrow – will not clog nozzle assemblies.
Perfect for Blending: Uniform, highly-flowable pellets available in convenient 2,000 lb. totes mix easily with fertilizers, (bulk density = 49 lbs. per cubic foot).
Less passes over the field: Metarex can be broadcast 40-60 feet with consistent coverage.
Save Time & Product: Highly visible blue orange color makes for more easier and quicker verification of treated areas.
Flyway friendly – Bright, “OSU beaver” orange-colored pellet is not favored by waterfowl.
Acts selectively, controlling only harmful slugs, not beneficial insects.
