Using Nematodes

Answered by Gavin Posted in Category Pest Control & Nature

Dear Gavin

I'm planning on using nemaslug next year, just wondering if I can also use your grow your own nemyses  product as well, on the same plots?





Dear Elaine

You'll be fine to apply both 'Nemaslug Slug Killer' and 'Nemasys Grow Your Own' onto the same plot.

From my knowledge 'Nemaslug Slug Killer' contains a single species of nematode which is absent from 'Nemasys Grow Your Own' however there are varying levels of these occurring naturally in the soil and so undoubtedly coming into contact with one another, but being host specific neither should attack the other.

So providing they are applied in the correct manner (and preferably under the best conditions) they should all do their job fine.

Believe it or not I began my career as a cobbler, however, after 11 years in the trade I decided to pursue my boyhood dream of studying insects (this I had already been doing for much of my life!). Whilst studying towards this career change I applied for a part-time post in the entomology department at one of the UK's leading plant biological science research institutes. I was fortunate enough to secure the post, to which I have now occupied for 12 years full-time.
