Nemaslug Nematode Slug ControlAnswered by Gavin Posted in Category Pest Control & Nature
Can you please tell me if I can use the application of nematodes on ground where I still have growing crops and flowers. I still have beetroot, potatoes, carrots and cabbage in ground on my allotment where I wish to make the effort to control the slug population. I also wish to apply the treatment to my flower beds at home where I have set out young plants, wallflowers, viola and dianthus which will hopefully give us a good show next year (if the slugs do not destroy them all!).
A reply at your earliest possible convenience would be very much appreciated .

The simple and quick answer to your question is yes, it's absolutely fine to use nematodes on areas where you still have growing vegetables etc. growing.
Do follow the instructions supplied with them to maximise their effectiveness.
