Special Offer – It’s time to apply a final application of Nemaslug Slug Nematodes – One of the best ways to reduce slugs in your garden in the Spring is to apply a final application of slug nematodes before temp drops. Slugs do NOT hibernate and are able to breed throughout the winter, laying huge numbers of eggs, but reproduction occurs mainly in autumn, when clusters of spherical, yellowish-white eggs can be found under logs, stones and pots. Applying Nemaslug® NOW BEFORE the soil temperature drops means fewer slugs to over-winter and breed, so less slugs next spring. Nemaslug Slug Killer contains natural nematodes, that are effective at controlling slugs, but unlike chemical controls, are safe for children, pets, birds and wildlife and they have been approved for use in organic gardening by the Soil Association. Nemaslug® works at temperatures above 5c/40f, so apply OUTDOORS before the DAYTIME soil temp drops below 5c – it does not matter if it drops below this at night and these nematodes can even survive a mild frost or use UNDERGLASS throughout the winter i.e. ideal for use in polytunnels.

Full Description

Nemaslug® is the No.1 bird/wildlife friendly solution for slugs. Nemaslug® will not harm children, pets, birds and wildlife. Song birds i.e. thrushes, hedgehogs, frogs, toads and some insects i.e. ground beetles love to feed on slugs and their eggs. These predators have a significant impact on the slug population, but many of the chemicals used in slug pellets can be toxic to these predators, so if you use them, you run the risk of harming them. There are also increasing concerns about the effects of these chemicals on pets. Unlike Nemaslug®, many slug pellets do NOT work well during wet weather – exactly when you need protection against slugs. Nemaslug® also kills slugs BOTH above and below ground.

Nemaslug® contains millions of microscopic beneficial nematodes (Phasmarhabditis Hermaphrodita) that occur naturally in your soil. They are invisible to the naked eye and come as a powder, which is mixed with water and applied to the soil where they search out and invade the slugs. As the nematodes invade the slug, it will stop feeding and will burrow underground to die. As it decomposes in the soil, the nematodes are released back into the soil to search out more slugs and the whole process starts again. Nemaslug® works at temperatures above 5c/40f, so apply OUTDOORS before the DAYTIME soil temp drops below 5c – it does not matter if it drops below this at night and these nematodes can even survive a mild frost or use UNDERGLASS throughout the winter i.e. ideal for use in polytunnels.

How is it sent? Nemaslug® is a perishable, living product, so it is sent out fresh by Royal Mail 1st class post. Being a perishable, living product, it must be used before the expiry date (which is marked on the inside of the pack and will be at least 2 weeks) and it must be stored in the fridge until it is needed. Once opened, the contents do not keep, so it must be used in one day – do NOT store the made up solution or powder. 1 or 2 packs will go through your letterbox and should be popped in the fridge as soon as possible – they are fine on the doormat while you are at work. N.B. Large orders i.e. 3 or more large packs will not fit through the letterbox, so someone will need to be in to receive it.

How to apply? Nemaslug® is easy to use. Simply mix the harmless powder with water & apply to the soil around the plant using a watering can fitted with a Coarse Rose (we recommend the Fine as Rain Rose no.14) or use an EasyNem Applicator, Hose-end Feeder or a Nematode Applicator for larger areas. Use the whole pack before the expiry date, which is marked on the inside of the pack and will be at least a couple of weeks. Apply in a broad band around your plants to increase the chances of slugs coming into contact with the nematodes.

N.B. Need a Coarse Rose, EasyNem Applicator, Hose-end Feeder or Nematode Applicator – Add one to your basket and save £1.00 off a Coarse Rose, save £2.00 off a EasyNem Applicator or a Hose-end Feeder or save £3.50 off a Nematode Applicator when bought with your nematodes (savings applied at the checkout).
