Pet Safe Slug Control with Slug Nematodes
Slug Nematodes are the most effective natural pest control to rid your garden of slugs. They are microscopic, transparent worms, which feed and multiply inside the slug. Safe to use around children, pets and wildlife.
The nematodes are found naturally in the soil, you are just topping up the numbers by applying these.
How Long After Applying Slug Nematodes Can I see Results?
Once you apply the slug nematodes, the slugs stop feeding after a few days and die within a week. For total control apply every 6 weeks. Start your slug control early and apply at least a week before planting to ensure your garden is safe from slugs.
How do I apply Slug Nematodes?
The nematodes come complete with instructions and can be applied using a watering can or nematode applicator. You just apply to moist soil when the soil temperature is above 5ºC (41ºF) and ensure the soil does not dry out for at least two weeks after applying nematodes. Nematodes are capable of surviving the odd frost; so don't worry if the temperature falls after you have applied the nematodes.
