✔ Fast and effective control

Slugs are one of the most destructive pests in British gardens, it’s a constant battle
to keep them under control as they can eat about twice their own body weight each day! Nemaslug® controls all common species of small to medium sized slugs. One
application of Nemaslug® can provide up to 6 weeks protection.
Unlike chemical pellets, the nematodes continue to work well during wet weather - exactly when you need protection against slugs. Start your control early and you will be able to target the young slugs growing under the ground before they do any damage. Slugs are generally active when plants start growing and soil temperature is over 5°C.
Young slugs tend to stay underground, feeding on decaying organic matter, developing unseen and waiting for young seedlings to be planted. They breed all year round with two overlapping generations, peak egg laying is March – April and September – October. Nemaslug® uses nematodes (Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita), naturally occurring microscopic living organisms already present in the soil. All our products are continually quality tested to ensure effectiveness.

area using a side-to-side motion. Application will take approximately 8
minutes under standard water pressure conditions. To make sure the
nematodes are adequately watered in, treat the same area again for a
further 8 minutes if treating a vegetable patch or 16 minutes if
treating a lawn. Applications to lawns require more water to wash the
nematodes through the grass thatch.

Using the biological power of nematodes to protect your plants:
- Nematodes are naturally occurring microscopic worms, already present in the soil.
How nematodes work:
Our specially selected nematodes attack the pest by entering natural
body openings or by penetrating the insect cuticle directly.
- Once inside, they release bacteria that stops the pest from feeding, quickly killing the pest.
They do not stop there. The nematodes reproduce inside the dead pest
and release a new generation of hungry nematodes, which disperse to hunt
down further prey.
- When nematodes can no longer find prey they will die back to their original numbers.
