Phasmarhabditis Hermaphrodita - Slug Nematodes **BEST SELLER**
Type: Microscopic nematodes.
How it works: Nematodes seek slugs & water snails, they enter the body & start to develop from infective juveniles to adults. In doing so, a pellet of bacteria is released that begins to multiply spreading throughout the host body. Infected slugs are noticeable by the swollen mantle on their back, this ruptures a few days later releasing thousands of nematodes that seek to infect further hosts.
Species controlled: Most slug species including Arion and Deroceras
spp & some snail species including those which are commonly found on nurseries & in gardens.
When to use: Almost any time of the year when soil temperatures are between 5 & 30°C. Soil moisture should not be a problem in commercial horticulture, unless the area dries up completely.
