Product Description

Slug Nematodes Microscopic transparent worms which feed and multiply inside the slug, not visible with a hand lens. Just dilute with water and water on. An infected slug stops feeding within 3 to 5 days and then displays a typical swelling of the mantle. The nematodes multiply inside the slug and when it starts to decompose, a new generation of nematodes emerges. SOIL TEMPERATURE: Must be above 5 degrees Available Now - September

3.0 out of 5 stars Slug Killer Nematodes 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I tried out two packs of this, the first early in the season, ( they only last six weeks) and the second later. The first pack worked very well, and my veg and perennials such as hostas, did very well with almost no damage after the first application. Not so for the second application, as you could not tell the had been treated. Plenty of slug and snail damage in the later part of the season. The Nematodes are expensive, and unless you buy the large pack, and treat a wide area then slugs will migrate from the non treated area. The Nematodes were difficult to apply, as they were thick in water and blocked all the watering cans I tried. None has a rose with large enough holes so I ended up sprinkling from the round end minus rose, which was wasteful and unsatisfactory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Appears to work! 23 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
This appears to have worked, the instructions were followed and within a week not a slug was to be found in the treated area. Used in conjunction with slug pellets I've done my bit for destroying the local population - the plants are healthy and I only see the occasional dead snail and slug.

My dad used to joke that he'd planted a hedge in the front garden to repel elephants. "But you don't get elephants around here dad" said the younger I, to which he responded that the hedge obviously worked!! These nematodes are much the same, they may or may not work but you can't really tell because the slugs all die underground so you never actually know if there it killed all the slugs, or if the local slug population never actually turned up!

I have bought these nematodes for the last three years and find them very good. They have definitely been an asset in controlling the slugs, far better than anything else I have tried.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death to Slugs and Snails. 15 May 2014
By DaveH
Verified Purchase
This is a very good and effective tool for getting rid of slugs and snails. The only roblem is when to apply it has it must not be used if the ground is waterlogged, but it should be watered in afterwards and should not be applied in sunshine. With the UK climate being so changeable getting a time to suit these requirements is very difficul within the products shelf life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slugs? What slugs? 8 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
After last year's siege-like conditions with our slugs we were keen to use this product. This year we have had no slug-related damage at all. Great product

Whow, these nematodes were fresh and hungry! I have used this product before, but not from this supplier. Would recommend supplier and product with no hesitation. We have huge and voracious slugs - revolting and destructive. I use a hose applicator and actually watered the Nemaslug in during a rain shower - the following morning not a slug to be seen!. Last year, I had to wait a few days, but nope, these nematodes were raring to go. It really is a dream product - just get more than you need, as you cannot overdose. Water it in well, and water the area as normally after the first 48 hours, so that the little beasties can wash right down into the soil and start feeding on the slugs and eggs ... GRREAT! I notice a reduction in snail population too, although it is not supposed to affect snails, but I reckon the nematodes like the baby snails underground as a change! This product is one which I apply with a huge sigh of relief, as I LOATHE slugs and ours just sneer at any slug-killer and walk over it. Once this stuff is watered in, they just stop appearing - no bodies, no squelchy, exploding bombs under foot in the dark, nothing - occasionally the odd torpid, stiff slug makes its way out, but they are obviously not happy or healthy, hooray. Oh I am cruel .... The 'every six weeks' application is approximate, but not far out - once you see slugs appearing, get some more - and do apply a final dose at the end of the season to kill off those pesky, revolting eggs, to give a bit of a start for the next growing season. Here in S. Devon, the slug season is really all year, so I bless the day that a farmer friend of mine from Wales told me about nematodes. The stuff is not even gruesome, just like cream-coloured damp flour. It keeps well in the fridge and they supply it with a good use-by date. Go on, if you hate slugs like me, try it - well worth it.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for first time veg patchers 16 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase
We'd easily clear 60 slugs from our 15x5 metre veg patch of an evening (and that's only on the few beds where we'd planted things). Had tried organic slug pellets and beer traps, both of which did their jobs, but weren't enough to battle the sheer number of slugs. Used this, within 2 weeks there was not a slug to be seen. A few weeks later, I may find one or two that had made it onto the lower leaves of my lettuces.
It's a shame we've had to use this, as it means we won't attract the natural slug predators, but we may be able to ease off in time, as our veg patch gets more established.
For first time growers though (like us), I'd recommend it if you can't go out slug hunting every night, and don't want to get disheartened by feeling as though the only benefactors of your home grown food are the gastropods gourmands.
