500 Billion SLUGS!!!!!

500 Billion SLUGS!!!!!
By Rob 2 years ago

You have no doubt read or heard the latest headlines that we are expecting 80 billion extra slugs to invade our gardens over the summer!

WOW! Turns out that slugs have been breeding like rabbits (!) and the mild weather has provided the perfect conditions for sluggate!

The Charity BugLife says there is a 'bumper year ahead' for the slimy creatures, with an additional 80 billion slugs resulting from this year's breeding behaviour.  According to BugLife, the average British garden contained around 20,000 slugs last year, with each one laying between 20 and 100 eggs.

We’re here to help so here are our top 3 tips1: Slugs LOVE Beer! Fill a shallow bowl with beer and wait overnight you can

then dispose of the remains by adding it to your compost.

2: Encourage and look after your Hedgehogs – they enjoy a tasty slug or two

for supper so are well worth looking after. Look here for our top solutions

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

SORTED.
