Phasmarhabditis-System contains the molusc parasitizing nematode Pharmarhabditis hermaphrodita which guarantees an effective biological control of slugs in agricultural and horticultural crops. The nematodes are applied as a drench to the soil. They actively search for their prey and invade it via the respiratory opening under the mantle. An infected slug stops feeding within days and displays a typical swelling of the mantle. The nematodes multiply inside the slug and when it starts to decompose, a new generation of nematodes spreads and starts looking for the next prey. Phasmarhabditis-System provides protection against slugs for at least 6 weeks.


Phasmarhabditis-System is gelformulated in a specially developed inert carrier and is delivered in the following units:

  • 12 million nematodes
  • 30 million nematodes
