NEMAslug contains millions of tiny nematodes called Heterorhabditis hermaphrodita which actively seek out slugs and infect them with a bacteria which will stop them from feeding and kill them. The nematodes will then leave the corpse and seek out more slugs and snails. All kinds of slugs will be targeted and unlike other controls you will not see dead slugs as they go underground to die.  As they are so safe, they can be used on all edible crops and ornamentals. They can be used to control (nude) snails such as field snails (Deroceras sp.), many bottom snails (Oxyloma sp.) and road snails (Arion sp.).

NEMAslug is a 100% safe product for pets, children and other wildlife. It is also environmentally friendly and are a perfect choice for organic gardeners. They work down to temperatures of 5oC so can be used early in the season but will also survive the odd frost. Nematodes are particularly effective in damp, wet weather unlike pellets which can become less effective when wet. For best results nematodes need to be reapplied every 6 weeks. Nematodes are perishable and need to be applied quickly after delivery. They can however be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.
