Good Year For Slugs And A Bad Year For Your Tender Plants.

It’s going to be a tough year for slugs. The hard winter will have destroyed many eggs and young hibernating slugs that were lying in wait for spring before attacking your vulnerable garden plants and fresh green vegetable shoots. The downside is, that winter will also have killed many of the slugs’ natural enemies such as birds and hedgehogs, and it is a certain bet that the slugs will recover faster than their predators. One of the best organic controls is the use of nematodes, a very small worm-like, parasitic organism which, worked into your garden soil in good time, will feed on slugs and stop the problem at source. It is safe to use and not harmful to humans, animals or plants.
