BASF’s beneficial nematodes sold under the Nemasys® and Nemaslug® brands are renowned pest control products and have been used by commercial growers and gardeners alike for over two decades.
Beneficial nematodes are naturally occurring microscopic worms, already present in the soil. Our research scientists have isolated individual species of beneficial nematodes that target only specific garden pests including slugs, vine weevils, chafer grubs, leatherjackets, caterpillars, codling moth and various others.
They are easy to use, very effective and available in small pack sizes for home use. When used according to the instructions, they are safe for children, pets, wildlife, birds and bees, and are suitable for organic gardens.
