How does it control pests?

Infectious juvenile nematodes search for soil-dwelling slugs. They penetrate their prey through the respiratory opening under the mantle.  An infected slug stops eating after two days and shows a typical swelling of the mantle. 

These nematodes are hermaphroditic and self-fertilising, which causes them to produce hundreds of off spring.

When the snail starts to decompose, a new generation of nematodes disperses in search of their next prey.
