EDTA Ferric Sodium (C10H12FeN2NaO8), also known as sodium ferric ethylenediaminetetraacetate, is a broad spectrum molluscicide used to kill snails and slugs and protect agricultural crops and garden plants. It is a white, water-soluble powder. EDTA Ferric Sodium works by interacting with and destroying hemocyanin, a copper-based compound found in the blood of molluscs and arthropods which is used to carry oxygen, similar to haemoglobin found in vertebrates. It typically kills snails and slugs in a matter of days following exposure. The compound is much safer than Metaldehyde and does not pose a significant risk to birds, pets, or humans so long as the bait is not consumed. Snails and slugs which feed on or ingest EDTA Ferric Sodium stop feeding almost immediately after exposure, and die within two to three days.
