Nemaslug Slug Killer is fast gaining a reputation as the organic way of winning the battle against garden slugs, and as one application of nemaslug can provide up to 6 weeks protection it is a cost effective slug killer as well.

Nemaslug controls all common species of small to medium sized slugs. Start your control early and you will be able to target the young slugs growing under the ground before they do any damage. 

One application of Nemaslug provides 300,000 nematodes - phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita - for every square metre of soil, giving at least six weeks control of slugs which is generally enough time for seedlings and bedding plants to get well established.

Simple to apply, impossible to overdose and totally safe to use around children, pets and wildlife, Nemaslug Slug Killer is ideal for organic gardening. Simply dissolve the entire pack into bucket to make a stock solution and then add 0.5L to a 5 litre watering can fitted with a very coarse rose and fill with water. This can then be watered on the garden from the start of the growing season once soil temperatures hit 5°C.

It works. Hooray! By Anonymous 5 16th August 2016

Just used my second batch of nematodes since the first application worked impressively well. Slug population now considerably reduced - no more disappearing new plants or lacey leaves. The fact that nematodes will not harm wild life is important to me. And the fact that sick or dying slugs bury themselves means no more slimy bodies to be dealt with. Try these nematodes - you will not be disappointed.

A slug-free allotment! By Anonymous 5 12th August 2016

The nematodes were exactly as shown and arrived on time. Easy to order and they have worked too, a slug-free allotment makes life much easier. I ordered the double set, so will await the next delivery with confidence.

I will be a regular customer from now on! By Anonymous 5 12th August 2016

This is a fantastic breakthrough in my growing capacity on the allotment since I am an organic gardener, and certain crops have proved a nightmare with slug damage. The nematodes really work and I have actually managed to get a crop of strawberries and beans this year. The ease of ordering has been a delight and the promptness of delivery superb.

Slug damage can be recognised by the irregular holes with smooth edges they make on leaves and nearby will be evidence of their slime trials. They are particularly fond of succulent seedlings, which when left unprotected, can be totally destroyed in a single night.

As well as attacking the leafy parts of plants, slugs will also feast on your fruit and vegetable crop. Slugs will chew holes in your ripening strawberries and tomatoes. Potatoes are particularly vulnerable, since they are attacked without the slugs having to leave the safety of being underground.

Nemaslug Slug Killer

Nemaslug controls all common species of small to medium sized slugs (up to 8cm - 2.5-3 inches). Start your control regime early and you will be able to target the young slugs growing under the ground feeding on humus.

Nemaslug uses the nematode Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita, which was discovered by scientists at the government research institute at Bristol, England.

One application of Nemaslug provides 300,000 nematodes for every square metre of soil, giving at least six weeks control of slugs. This is generally enough time for seedlings and bedding plants to get well established.

Nemaslug is easy to apply and does not leave any unsightly residues. The majority of the slugs will die underground, so don't expect to see dead slugs lying around.

Apply Nemaslug to moist soil. The soil temperature should be 5ºC (40ºF) or over (this is when plants start to grow). Nematodes are capable of surviving the odd frost; so don't worry if the temperature falls after you have applied Nemaslug. Metaldehyde based slug pellets are reported not to be effective below 7ºC.

Potatoes are susceptible to slug attack later in the season than most other plants. So you can delay applying Nemaslug till 6-7 weeks before harvest, when the tubers are most likely to be eaten by slugs.

Unlike some controls, Nemaslug continues to work well during wet weather - exactly when you need protection against slugs!

'Best Buy' This product is growing in popularity with serious speed. The Large Nemaslug treatment pack will cover up to 100 square metres of soil and a single application will give you a period of six weeks protection against slugs. Such a time scale gives your plants and seeds a vital window of safety for development. Personally, I'm a real fan of nematode products because they are natural, safe and very effective. With easy to follow instructions, application couldn't be more simple either - you put a portion of the compound into a watering can and apply to the soil. It provides great results with no fuss!
