Nematode Slug Destroyer

Dear Gavin

Hi there can you help me please? I have just used Nematode slug destroyer and have watered it onto my lettuce plants. Are they now safe to eat or will I have to destroy them? There was no info on the packet about this?   Regards Jenny green

Hi Jenny

The nematodes used against slugs and other garden pests are harmless to us, they wouldn't tolerate our body temperature etc. However, this does not mean I would recommend anyone purposely consuming them!

Thoroughly wash your lettuce before serving and it will be absolutely fine, no need to destroy it.
Many thanks for your query,
