How can I get rid of slugs in my Elkhorn and Staghorn ferns?

I have seen them in the Staghorn fern which are mounted on a board and can the the silvery tracks on the Elkhorn ferns which are in hanging baskets. The Staghorn has considerable damage on the shield fronds.

Hi Stephen,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Try to scatter the pallet of 'Bayer Baysol Snail & Slug Bait' around the board as well as on top of the root ball to help reduce the infestation of slugs , also registered to treat slaters and millipedes in ornamental garden.
