Description

Mass producing nematodes needs specialist equipment, treatment and aftercare in sterile and bacteria free conditions. Grewal, S (editor) et al, ( 2005), “ Nematodes as biocontrol agents” CABI Publishing, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, UK. Other indices of recent activity may be made apparent by slime trails , or irregular holes with smooth edges found on leaves. Each application of Nemaslug® will control slugs for six weeks, so for a slug free garden, apply Nemaslug® every 6 weeks. They are produced in specially designed air lift fermentors, which minimises mechanical damage/injury to living organisms, in huge 1000-20,00 litre capacity vats on a three dimensional matrix of foam chips impregnated with the required foods and nutrients and later inoculated with the symbiotic bacteria, ( Moraxella osloensis).

Make your garden a friendly place for these beneficial creatures by avoiding harmful sprays and creating a variety of wildlife habitats and nesting boxes. One application of Nemaslug provides 300,000 nematodes for every square metre of soil, giving at least six weeks control of slugs. Slugs can be a highly damaging pest and are particularly fond of succulent seedlings, which if left unprotected, can be completely destroyed in a single night. Nemaslug is less effective on cloggy clay soil, which has not been worked and/or has become waterlogged.Nemaslug can be applied any time when slugs are present as long as the soil temperature is 5oC (40oF). There are many control options available for slugs and snail but despite this they remain a persistent pest. Garden or kitchen waste can be broken down over time in a compost bin or heap to produce crumbly organic matter that can be used as a mulch, soil conditioner and a constituent of potting compost.

Many years ago I heard of a similar home made slug killing ‘soup’, made by drowning slugs in a bucket of water and pouring the resulting ‘soup’ onto your plants.Product user instructions were easy to follow although I did feel a bit of a numpty watering my entire garden. Slugs are widespread animals which can cause problems in the garden, eating holes in leaves, stems, flowers, tubers and bulbs.

As the nematodes invade the slug, it will stop feeding, so your plants are safe and will burrow underground to die. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Damage usually begins during August and becomes progressively worse the longer the crop is left in the ground. If you have an allotment or garden and grow your own food, then potatoes will probably be one of your bigger crops as it is our staple food.If you are dissatisfied in any way with their condition on arrival, please let us know within 14 days. We understand that every gardener wants success, and the foundation of that lies in the quality of the seeds and plants they choose. This is due to the vast majority of live products, hardware and seed items being sent out from separate warehouses and the costs involved. Voracious slugs can decimate tender plants – eating twice their own body weight each day with their 25,000 teeth!
