Details

Wet conditions are perfect for slug development and you may have already noticed the uneven feeding damage that they cause along with the slime trails that they leave behind them. New spring growth and young plants are particularly vulnerable to slugs and a single slug can consume twice its body weight per day!!! That could mean that you find considerable damage without very little warning....

It really is best to avoid old style blue slug pellets.! They use chemicals and if the slugs are then eaten by other birds and animals this can cause problems further down the food chain, apart from which if you want organic veggies of course they are a No No! So what are the alternatives? Well, you could spend your nights collecting them outside with a torch but this method is certainly not "The Good Life - made Easy....) Although your birds and your hens may well enjoy the treat... You could go for barriers - Slug Gone is great because it provides a barrier that irritates the slug's foot, and how about SlugX - this was voted best tray in a Daily Telegraph trial - and they will die drinking beer (!) which can't be all bad... BUT our favourite and the one that all the organic farmers use that works fantastically well is Nemaslug which you can water on and will sort those pesky pests out for a good six weeks, and is perfectly safe for children, pets, wildlife and bees.

Why is it good?

1: Unique, works underground where 95% of slugs are found.

2: Long lasting control (six weeks)

3: Really economical - it protects plants for a few pence a day.

4: It even protects vulnerable potato varieties, germinating seeds and young seedlings and even better The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh says it is fab and they are an Official Endorser.

5: Nemaslug works at 5 degrees (pellets require 7 degrees)

6: Works really well in wet weather which can be a problem with other methods.

7: Large slug species can be controlled when Nemaslug is applied early.

8: Can be used safely on food crops.

and lastly it's Safe for children, pets, wildlife, and bees... Nice!

Luckily, rain also benefits the nematodes in Nemaslug making it a great way to control slugs when they are at their worst. Additionally, as slugs become more active during periods of wet weather they will encounter more nematodes and this will enhance the rates of infection too.

How does Nemaslug (Nematodes) work?

1: You water your Nematodes onto the soil and they seek out the slugs down in the soil.

2: The Nematodes kill the Slugs and become adults inside the dead slugs

3: A new generation of Nematodes are produced.

4: The new Nematodes are released as the pest decays in the soil

This stuff is very easy to use and it does pretty much what it says on the packet Review by Nicholas Whitehead
Review
This stuff is very easy to use and it does pretty much what it says on the packet. After three days, you find a few dead slugs on the surface. The others remain underground and rot. So they end up feeding the plants they would have destroyed. Excellent!
The packet says the treatment lasts 'up to six weeks'. That's a nice way of saying 'less than six weeks'. Three or four weeks in my experience. The little slugs are the first to reappear.
Tip: Don't just treat the growing beds; treat the whole garden. Slugs will hide under gravel and such like until the coast is clear. (Posted on 25/02/2013)

A great product Review by Melanie Matthews
Review
A great product - which i used in my garden once and it did work but unfortunately too expensive to use for my allotments (the space is just too big). Sadly i have reverted to slug pellets (organic ones though which are apparently animal friendly so i dont feel QUITE so bad!)

I use Nemaslug every year to 18 months and although not totally slug free Review by Julia
Review
I use Nemaslug every year to 18 months and although not totally slug free I certainly get very few, and can be very smug when my neighbours are complaining how bad the slugs are this year. I probably ought to do a double dose in my compost bins as that's where I get the most slugs.

Review
Just about the buy it again for the third year running, I used the 3 treatment package each year on my allotment. I had almost no slugs last year right to the end of the season. Easy to apply.

Used it last year on the multi buy. As one treatment is ending the next is on the door step. I had next to no slugs on the veg plot last year and all my veg were safe. Cannot stop telling all my friends about it. Get it, it works!
