Nemaslug Slug Killer large pack 100sm Fri, 21 Apr 2017 15:11:14 +0000 We haven’t tried this out yet but unless the nematodes get into the fish think it might work? What do you think?
Control slugs NATURALLY by applying Nemaslug® containing nematodes which are effective at controlling slugs. Slugs queue up to lunch on your bedding plants and munch their way through your vegetables before you do! To control slugs NATURALLY, simply water on Nemaslug® throughout the growing season between March / October Slugs come in all shapes, colours and sizes (including the small, black, sneaky ones which travel underground) but they all have several characteristics in common – They are covered in a watery mucus – which leaves a “slime trail” and they require water for reproduction. Slugs are able to breed throughout the year, laying huge numbers of eggs. Each cubic metre of soil contains on average up to 200 slugs able to breed all year round with each slug laying about 300 eggs. Control slugs naturally by applying Nemaslug® – the No.1 bird/wildlife friendly solution for slugs. Nemaslug® contains natural nematodes which are effective at controlling slugs (each application of Nemaslug® will control slugs for 6 weeks). Unlike Nemaslug®, many slug pellets do NOT work well during wet weather – exactly when you need protection against slugs. Nemaslug® will not harm wildlife and pets. Song birds (i.e. thrushes), hedgehogs, frogs, toads and some insects i.e. ground beetles love to feed on slugs and their eggs. These predators have a significant impact on the slug population, but many of the chemicals used in slug pellets can be toxic to these predators, so if you use them, you run the risk of harming them. There are also increasing concerns about the effects of these chemicals on pets. Nemaslug® contains millions of beneficial nematodes (Heterohabditis Megadis). They are invisible to the naked eye and come as a powder. Applied to the soil, they search out and invade the slugs. As the nematodes multiply inside the slug, it will stop feeding and will burrow underground to die.

Calci Worms Small Size – Approx 1000 Wed, 05 Apr 2017 08:34:37 +0000 Black Soldier Fly Larvae compost a diverse range of food waste streams and their prepupae (tough shell-covered bodies that look a bit like woodlice) are then a resource-efficient and high nutrient substitute for wild-catch fishmeal (highly unsustainable) that could have a significant beneficial economic and environmental impacts.

Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) as a feed have been trialled extensively on the small scale for over 30 years, and are found to be a compelling potential commercial feedstuff for other food-animals. When dried (for easy storage) the prepupae (BSFP) contain 42% protein and 35% fat. In combination with other ingredients, BSFP have been trialled successfully as a feed for rainbow trout and catfish achieving good growth and health results. Studies indicate that BSFP can replace >25% of a fish meal in a diet with no negative effect on growth in rainbow trout and in channel catfish. insects could be legally used in fish feeds in Europe as early as next July after the EU voted in December to accept proposed amendments to legislation governing farmed insects used in animal feeds. Not that we were worried – Food safety and bacterial considerations for using this feed are so far favorable. In China, the USSR, USA, Mexico and Eastern Europe BSFP have been fed to poultry, pigs, shrimp, various species of fish, turtles and frogs – no problems. Moreover anti-microbial factors were recorded reducing the chance of feed transmitting pathogens wherein BSFL have been shown to significantly reduced E. coli 0157:H7 and Salmonella enterica in hen manure (pretty good going).
