I use it on my own garden and several I look after, i have been for 5 years now and find it to be exallent, after 2 years it seems to keep going on its own :]

The worms eat the slugs and snals from the inside, so anything eating
them, tremain unharmed, so its a great organic way to deal
with the critters imo

I don't think its available in the US yet. It sounds like a great. It has to be better than walking around at night with a flashlight and picking them.
Which is what I've been doing for about 2 weeks now.

I have another question.

Every once in while I find a couple mating. I ussualy toss the pair in the lime water. Last week when I spotted a pair theyhad these little white specks moving pretty quickly along the outside of their bodies. Specks about 1/2mm moving at about 3 cm /sec. The slugs were probably brown garden slugs Limax flavus. Has anyone else seen this? Do you know if this is part of the slug life cycle or a parasite? I'm thinking life cycle these slugs looked healthy.

parasite i think, slugs mate by stabbing each other with
what look like glass tubes, containing sperm. These are stabbed into any part, then snapped of

The researchers offers 5000$ for a worm infected slug!
/me runs out of office and starts collecting slugs.

Ah... they're looking for a native american parasite. Well Paid could send infected slugs to an American who would claim that it was found there and collect the prize.

Thanks zerino I went right by that link, I found a sick slug.

If I find any more of those slugs with the white specks I will catch one and take a look under a microscope.
