Soil Bourne pests

Has anyone used the Nematode treatment to combat a slugs, snails and weevils problem within their garden soil ?. If so how successful was it and is it worth the expense. Maybe a strong diluted drench of Jeyes Fluid might solve the same problem. Any advice would be welcome.

    'strong diluted' - how is that going to work???

    I used nematodes on my raised strawberry beds.  Of course it's impossible to do proper controls, but I'd say they were pretty successful compared with the previous year, when I didn't use anything other than hand removal.  I avoid using slug pellets on edible crops.
