Placebo-Pellet™

Accurately calibrate and test your slug pellet applicator

The De Sangosse Placebo Pellet ensures optimum results from your applicator. You will know exactly how your applicator performs and get the best from your valuable ‘live’ slug treatments.

Pellets without the active

Our placebo slug pellets are deliberately designed to resemble De Sangosse TDS and Ironmax Pro products, yet contain no active substance. They are for calibration and demonstration purposes only, and have no efficacy against any slug species found in the UK.

Essential for testing

NSTS tests on pellet applicators have been compulsory since November 2016 and there is an ongoing obligation to test applicators every six years. Calibration should be carried out between every season and whenever there is a change of product.

This leaflet, courtesy of NSTS (National Sprayer Testing Scheme), will guide you.
