Integrating biological and chemical control of slugs

Integrating biological and chemical control of slugs

The BCPC Conference: Pests and diseases, Volume 3 Proceedings of an international conference held at the Brighton Hilton Metropole Hotel, Brighton, UK, 13-16 November 2000: 1007-1012

Slug pests are typically controlled by broadcasting baited pellets onto the soil surface. Such applications kill surface-active slugs, but do not affect slugs below ground. The parasitic nematode, Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita, is a biological control agent for slugs that is particularly effective at controlling subterranean slugs. Thus, there is potential for achieving greater slug control by combining both methods.
