Funny things going on in Matron's fridge at the moment! I ordered a box of Nemaslug
to try to get control of the number of slugs on my allotment. We've just had a very wet, very mild Winter and I fear that it will be a bumper year for slugs and snails. Better get on top of them at the beginning of the season. My elderly Mother wanted to know what the blue and green box was in her fridge! "One hundred million worms, Mother" was the reply!
This comes as a pale powder that you dilute in a 2 gallon watering can. The nematode worms live in damp soil and when they come in contact with a slug they begin to kill it. The soil has to be kept damp so that they can survive.
In about a week the slugs should have stopped eating. To be honest, I don't know if this works or not! I will never know how it would have been if I hadn't used it! To me, it just seems like a good idea to reduce the numbers at the beginning of the season. Safe to use with pets and wildlife, so a bit better than pellets.
