It doesn't hurt the plants, but it does dissolve the eggs that are laid around the roots. It has reduced the slug population noticeably. I also pour the ammonia solution directly on slugs that I see on the deck. Dissolves them right away.

Thread some dental floss through the hole and tie several to branches of the fruit tree. The scent of the soap is more than enough to deter the pests away from your garden and protect your trees all season long!
