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 uses the nematode Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita, which was discovered by scientists at the government research institute at Bristol, England. These naturally occur in the soil and are invisible to the naked eye.
Apply Nemaslug to moist soil. The soil temperature needs be at least 5°C (40°F) or over (this is also 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.
Unlike some controls, Nemaslug continues to work well during wet weather – exactly when you need protection against slugs!
If you have a heavy clay area, ensure you apply Nemaslug to well worked soil. Nemaslug is less effective on cloggy clay soil, which has not been worked and/or has become waterlogged.
Packs come in sizes to treat 40 sq.m (50 sq.yds) and 100 sq.m (125 sq.yds) and in pre planned packs.
