NATURAL CONTROL By applying Nemaslug® Slug Killer. The nematodes in Nemaslug® Slug Killer are found naturally in UK soil and have been approved for use in organic gardening by the Soil Association. Nemaslug® needs a soil temperature of 5c, so apply Nemaslug® OUTDOORS from March onwards AS SOON as the soil is warm enough to protect your plants naturally. Please never use chemicals in your garden.
Contents Nemaslug® contains millions of microscopic beneficial nematodes that occur naturally in your soil.
How it works Nematodes are invisible to the naked eye and come as a powder, which is mixed with water and applied to the soil where they search out and invade the slugs. As the nematodes invade the slug, it will stop feeding and will burrow underground to die. As it decomposes in the soil, the nematodes are released back into the soil to search out more slugs and the whole process starts again. Nemaslug® works at temperatures above 5C/40F, so apply Nemaslug® AS SOON as the soil is warm enough . Nemaslug will work in wet weather. Nemaslug® works BOTH above and below ground.
Application Dilute and Water into the soil. Each application of Nemaslug® will control slugs for six weeks, so for a slug free garden, apply Nemaslug® every 6 weeks. Nemaslug® is easy to use. Simply mix the harmless powder with water & apply to the soil around the plant using a watering can using acoarse rose or a hose-end feeder. Use the whole pack before the expiry date, which is marked on the inside of the pack and will be at least a couple of weeks. Apply in a broad band around your plants to increase the chances of slugs coming into contact with the nematodes.
Environmental – Nemaslug® is a bird/wildlife friendly solution for slugs. Nemaslug® will not harm children, pets, birds and wildlife. Song birds i.e. thrushes, hedgehogs, toads and some insects i.e. ground beetles love to feed on slugs and their eggs.
