Nematodes and slug control
Apologies if this has been covered in previous posts, but I'm desperate to know if I can use nematodes in my greenhouse and in pots? I have a dreadful slug phobia and also a dreadful slug invasion. Said phobia means I can't pick the little blighters off my crops, even though OH assures me they are just homeless snails (for which I don't have a phobia!).
I've also seen copper tape advertised for keeping the slugnasties out of my crops, but don't know if they work or how they work.
I've tried just about all the natural deterrents - crushed egg shells, gravel, cinders, etc - but my particular slugnasties seem to have cast iron feet and just wander over the deterrents.
I don't want to use slug pellets as I have a couple of hedgehogs and many birds coming to my garden, and also own 4 cats, so poison really isn't an option.
If any of you have a really good tried and tested method for slug and snail control, please let me into your secrets!
