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 proves a very cost way of controlling slugs too.

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.

Slugs remain a prolific pest in the garden and their damage can extend far beyond destroying flowers and vegetables, as they can carry lungworm parasite that can cause serious health problems in dogs and can be fatal if not diagnosed and treated. "We believe that by using nematodes to protect your garden against slugs, you are also protecting your dogs from lungworm" says Gavin Wood from BASF.  TV Vet Marc Abraham explains "Lungworm relies greatly on slug and snail hosts in order to grow and develop, and it's from ingesting these or just licking their trails that disease transmission may occur.

Our range of Nemaslug Slug Killer pack sizes (small and large) and programmes - developed by gardeners for gardeners - will help you find just the right treatment for your garden and allow you to grow slug-free vegetables and plants at last.

No slugs By Anonymous 2 2nd July 2018

I purchased this product just before the current hot spell and had to apply as there is a 'use by date'. We water every evening but the heat is drying out the soil in an hour or so, therefore have doubts the treatment will be effective. Also as it's so hot slugs and snails are not to be seen! I also purchased the sheepswool pellets which our dog seems to think they are to eat so all in all a case of bad timing !

A Great Product By Laurence Brain 5 16th May 2018

Does as it says on the tin and reduces slug numbers I estimate by 85-90%. Need one now that does the same for snails!

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!

Defending Dahlias

The main problem with dahlias are pests such as slugs, caterpillars and thrips. The Nemaslug and Nemasys range of products contain millions of beneficial nematodes that can travel through soil to where the pests are hiding. Slugs spend most of their time underground and nematodes can attack them before they are in sight unlike when using slug pellets.
