Flesh-Eating Slug Repellent in Pottermore

Flesh-Eating Slug Repellent was a pesticide used to get rid of Flesh-Eating Slugs.[1] It can be purchased in Knockturn Alley,[1] and its slogan was "with slugs out, mandrakes sprout."[2]


In the summer of 1992, Rubeus Hagrid went to Knockturn Alley to buy this product, as Flesh-Eating Slugs were destroying the cabbage crop at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. While there, he ran into Harry Potter, who had gotten lost after a Floo powder-related accident, and escorted him out of Knockturn Alley back to the Weasley family from he had been separated from.

Another time, when Harry, Ron, and Hermione were discussing that Hagrid might be the heir of Slytherin, Hagrid showed up behind them in the courtyard carrying the Flesh-Eating Slug Repellent.
