Typically it is applied in the form of slug pellets, which normally include a wheat bait.
Metaldehyde acts on the pest by contact or ingestion, and the aqueous environment inside the pest's cells readily hydrolyzes
Due to the contamination of drinking water by metaldehyde's use in agriculture a specialist organisation was established in 2008
called "The Metaldehyde Stewardship Group (MSG)".
On 19 December 2018, the British government banned the use of metaldehyde slug pellets outdoors from spring 2020;
after this date it would only be legal to use it in permanent greenhouses.
In July 2019, the ban was overturned after the High Court in London agreed with a challenge to its legality.
Metaldehyde pellets returned to the UK market for the foreseeable future
