Nematodes are microscopic naturally occurring soil organisms in the worm family (insect parasitic) which seek out larval stage of soil insects & in the case of slugs infect all stages of the insect. Once a nematode infects a bug, the bacteria released can kill the host in 24-48 hours. Nematodes will survive in the soil as long as there are snails and slug to reproduce in.

Unlike chemical pellets, the nematodes continue to work well during wet weather - exactly when you need protection against slugs. Start your control early and you will be able to target the young slugs growing under the ground before they do any damage. Slugs 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. They breed all year round with two overlapping generations, peak egg laying is March - April and September - October.
