This is a fantastic product. I used it for many years on my old smallholding and now in a far more manageable domestic garden. I have small children and keep chickens and cats. I am concerned not to cause them any harm while still controlling the slugs. Even though many slug pellets say they are not harmful to children and pets I feel far happier using nemotodes which are a natural slug predator rather than a chemical product.

You keep it in the sealed packet in the fridge until its ready to use (it looks like a microwaveable meal packet!). Once you open it it consists of a fine dusty powder that is the dormant, microscopic nematodes. You follow the simple directions for diluting it to the right strength and simply pour it over your garden in a watering can. Don't use it when its too cold or when the nemotodes may dry out quickly and, hey presto, in a few days no more slugs! No unsightly and worrisome blue pellets around your garden either.

Highly recommended.

I have used this now for four years and have found it works every time. Be sure to use it to the instruction on the packet. As noted before it needs to go in the ground just as the weather is warming up (about mid March) and the slugs are beginning to surface with the dampness. (It is a good idea to apply it whilst it is acually raining as the rain helps wash it down and the slugs are on their way up). Therefore it is best not too order it too early as it only has a short fridge life.
I have recommended this to many people and they have all found it works.

I got slugs for the first time in my back garden when we landscaped it last year. I would say they were little baby slugs, about 6 slugs seen every squared metre. I spent most mornings picking them up but this did not seem to make a difference. I searched online and came across this product, thinking yeah right, too good to be true. However, I was desperate to terminate them asap so thought I would give the nemasys slug killer a go. I used the nematodes through my hose fertiliser applicator mixed with water and loving watered my lawn and shrubs (i dont have vegetables) for about 20 minutes until the solution had finished. I then watered it in a little further with plain water. Within 3-4 days you could see the difference, by day 7 not a slug in sight! brilliant product, if used correctly and in right conditions. As full spring is nearing the slugs will start popping up again, low and behold we mowed our back lawn for the first time this year and there were two slugs near the shed so it's time to buy those nematodes again. I just hope the soil is above the recommended temp to use this. I am confident that we will have the problem under control in a week or two, thanks Nemasys. If only you had something for those angry wasps, then I could really enjoy my garden!

I am a new user of Nematodes but bought because my neighbour had been using them and reorted great results. Well having now tried them I will say that the slug and snail population was dramatically reduced. I will definitely be using this again next season. in the meantime, I must share you with an amazing slug discovery I made by accident last night!

Yesterday I gave the dog some watermelon still in the skin in the garden and forgot to take in the leftovers. Later that evening I realised I had forgotten to pick the days raspberrys - so not wanting them to attract 'undesirables' in the night, made way to the garden armed with torch.

I had just stepped onto the lawn when I was met with the most gruesome sight I will ever see; a mass of massive, fat slimy slugs writhing around in obvious esctasy at their find....the left over watermelon.

....Inside each slice there were dozens, and I mean dozens of the horrid slimy critters!! So great was the allure of the watermelon that several more were making their way towards each of the the discarded skins.

I could hardly believe my eyes! Now being a lady with a squemish nature, I was faced with the problem..what on earth do I do now? I mean picking up the odd slug with chopsticks (my choice of garden tool here) is one thing, but a slug festival with hundreds of the devils is quite another. I couldn't leave them there - as they would go on to munch my newly planted liatris, and other assorted delights.

After much head scratching I got one of my dogs poo bags and scooped them up en masse. Disgusting as it was I took great delight at easing them into a nice hot salty spa bath. I'm assuming they enjoyed it very much because they never wanted to come out.

Anyway good people. Get your nematodes. But in the meantime, if you want to attract them away from your seedlings and prize plants and dispose of several hundred en masse - simply save your watermelon skins with a little melon still on it and place strategically around your flower beds (away from the plants). Go out later with your torch and you will never again use beer (what a waste!!), or upturned grapefruit halves.

My only dilemea now...how to dispose of the bodies! Ewwww

Happy hunting! :)

This is the second year I have used nemaslug. Last year I discovered it late spring and after using the number of slugs in the garden were few and far between. This year I started using it mid march as per instructions on the packet and applied just before it started raining one evening. The only slugs I have seen have been two jelly like slugs! Very dead! The first was definitely a slug as it was only just looking like a white jelly (yuk!) and then I found a clearer slug shaped jelly last night on the garden. The birds are safely eating these and my plants are thriving :D

Have recommended this to friends and family - especially those with pets as its harmless to them and wildlife

During 2007 my vegetables were decimated by slugs. I tried egg shells, copper wire - everything. In 2008 I tried Nemaslug and what a difference. I shall be buying it again this Spring.

We have used Nemeslug for about 4 years now, and must say - it works . We usually do it March and August, our garden is about 20m x 10m we keep chickens so don't like to use pellets - we all know the price of copper! Nemeslugs is so easy and covers everywhere and the results are amazing. I usually use the 40sq m pack tip a quarter ofthe powder into a normal size watering can 4 times ,fill it with water then pour it over everything -lawn,flowerbeds,pots , raised veg beds, even hanging baskets then anything from one to three days the snails and slugs are gone.

This year for one reason and another I forgot to do it in march - then it slipped my mind completely until i got up one morning and my pepper plants had been stripped in the night "Oh Dear! I thought I must order Nemeslugs!"(or something like that) I did so at the begining of june - and now my crops have recovered, we still see the odd snail or slug first thing in the morning but the chickens usually have those for breakfast, but we certainly have not had the damaged plants we had without it.

This product is amazing and really works - if you apply it as it states on the packet. I have used it for several years now and when I use it I don't have slugs and when I forget or get lazy - everything gets eaten by slugs. Its great stuff.

Great - I followed the instructions carefully and after a few days no more plants getting eaten (applied early May in Bristol UK). 4 weeks later its still working. I'll re-apply as suggested at 6 weeks.

This is the most effective slug killer I have come across. Gets rid of those tiny cream/grey ones as well as the big ugly orange ones so common in the autumn.
Yes, you have to follow the instructions and application guidelines regarding soil temperature and timing but it is definitely worth it.
