Slug Contol with Nematodes
Slug Control with Phasmarhabditis (30 Million) BC10 Slug Nematodes
Arguably a gardeners number one pest! They feed on a wide range of plants causing severe damage on older plants and killing young plants.
Agralan offers a pesticide-free alternative of keeping slugs under control by introducing parasitic nematodes (Phasmarhabditis sp.) These UK native microscopic worms feed and multiply inside the slug. The infected slugs tend to hide underground where they stop feeding and die. Supplied as an easy-to-mix powder to be diluted with water before use. Apply to moist compost/soil using a watering can or sprayer.
Apply between March and October. A second application may be advisable 6-8 weeks later.
