Poochella-can't get Sluggo Plus in NYS apparently

phylrae(z5a/centralNYS)June 4, 2008


The Agway guy called Sluggo to order some of the Sluggo Plus (they had the regular kind), but they apparently said they couldn't sell it in NYS.....I wonder why. Agway guy said NYS is very picky about what they allow. LOL....and they can sell all the Ortho products that kill just about everything....go figure. :0( Phyl

Hi, I just ordered the Sluggo Plus on Amazon. The prices vary and this was the best one with shipping.

How curious Phylrae. Does NY want to protect their earwig population???? It's certified for organic use.

I know I stopped at several nurseries last year who were not going to order Sluggo Plus until their stock of regular Sluggo was sold, so my cynical side wonders if the Agway guy was just wanting to clear their shelves of product before ordering a new product. Total mystery.

Couldn't find any mention of Sluggo Plus on the NY State Dept of Environmental Conservation banned pesticides etc, but I did find Sluggo Plus, quite allowable, on the list at the link.

I don't know why it would be banned, but get it at Amazon and see if they can ship it to you. Don't call me for bail money when the Sluggo Plus Police come a-knockin' though LOL!

Here is a link that might be useful: scroll down to Sluggo Plus
