Control slugs NATURALLY by applying Nemaslug Slug Killer, which contains natural nematodes, that are effective at controlling slugs, but unlike chemical controls, are safe for children, pets, birds and wildlife. The nematodes in Nemaslug® are found naturally in UK soil and have been approved for use in organic gardening by the Soil Association. Nemaslug® works at temps above 5c/40f, so apply UNDERGLASS all year round OR apply OUTDOORS during the growing season i.e. between March and November. Nemaslug is a perishable product (it will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge), so order when you are ready to apply or select your dispatch date below. Nemaslug Standard Pack treats 40sqm. Nemaslug needs a soil temperature of 5c, so is normally applied outdoors from March onwards and is a perishable product, so order when you are ready to apply or if you do not want delivery ASAP, then enter a future date below. Available NOW or enter a future dispatch date below.

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 UNDERGLASS all year round OR apply OUTDOORS during the growing season i.e. between March and November. Each application of Nemaslug® will control slugs for six weeks, so for a slug free garden, apply Nemaslug® every 6 weeks.

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).

    The Nemaslug I ordered was dispatched & received very promptly with a generous lead time for ‘use by’, important in our area of the south east where rainfall can be scant just when you need it. Within a few days of the product being used I have noticed signs that slugs activity is slowing down. Good service and a good product

    We had a plague of very large slugs, mainly concentrated underneath our many bird feeders. One wet evening I counted forty plus slugs, some three inches long. The slug nematodes were used as recommended and within a week we could find only isolated individuals around the garden.”
