wireworm control

Past digging on my allotment, I have discovered I have a severe proble
with wireworm. The patch of ground which I intend to plant my potatoe is exceptionally bad with wireworm. I have plans to control slugs wit Nemaslug but I do not know much about wireworm control. Can anyone hel or suggest an organic solution to my troubles? Many thanks. Luk

Wireworms? *google, google, google* Ah, click beetles.
Here are some suggestions, but it doesn't look like an easy problem to defeat organically.

When I first started putting in a garden in this house, I found the soil was loaded with Japanese beetle larvae. I immediately put milky spore on my shopping list, but in the meantime, as I uncovered grubs, I would put them on a tray-type bird feeder that was sitting on a table; I mixed them in with some sunflower seeds and peanuts. The birds loved it! I even had some red-bellied woodpeckers coming to that feeder. One of them would dig around looking for grubs, then he crouch down on the table and carefully look under the tray. It was so cute!
Good luck.
