Win a planned programme of five packs of 40sqm Nemaslug product!
Slugs decimate tender plants, eating twice their bodyweight each day and leaving a tell-tale slime trail. They are generally active when plants start growing and soil temperature is over 5°C. Young slugs tend to stay underground, feeding on decaying organic matter, developing unseen and waiting for young seedlings to be planted. Nemaslug can reach these underground slugs, stopping them in their tracks.
Slugs breed all year round, with two overlapping generations. Peak egg laying season is March-April and September-October, but during a rainy summer, they can be consistently active.
Nemaslug contains millions of microscopic beneficial nematodes that occur naturally in your soil. They 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 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.
Each application of Nemaslug will control small slugs for six weeks, so for a slug-free garden, reapply every six weeks from March-October.
