I am fascinated by the use of Nemaslug to kill slugs but note that it is not cheap and on an allotment you can easily get invaded by slugs from neighbouring plots not protected. Given that the nematodes multiply in the dying bodies of slugs, is is possible propagate them, say in a bucket of collected slugs in a warm place, such that you could make enough solution to cover all the plots and surrounds of an allotment? Has this been tried?
I am hoping to rise to the top of the allotment waiting list this year…so I may one day be able to try out my idea!
many thanks


Asked from the GoYpedia slugs page



We tried using Nemaslug in one of our greenhouses but it didn't seem to have much effect. I would have thought you'd need a huge quantity for an allotment and have no idea how you could propagate the nematodes. I suspect it is nothing as simple as a bucket of slugs and throw the Nemaslug in though the company that is producing these would not want us as gardeners to be self sufficient in them :-((
