Default Snails and using nematodes?

So I had my orchid outsids all summer and now have snails. I really don't want to repot, and I'm wondering about using nematodes as prest control. Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita - Wikipedia. Any one try this, thoughts

No first-hand knowledge here, but let me throw out a few comments:

Nematodes tend to be soil-borne critters, so I don't know how well they would survive in an open mix used for orchids.

Even if they do, how sure are you that that you have the correct species for the type of snails?

If both of those clear, I don't imagine it's a particularly quick way to get rid of them.

Consider a pesticide containing measurol.
