Type: Microscopic nematodes. 

How it works: The nematode worms seek Vine Weevil Larvae in moist soil & compost, larger weevil grubs are more easily located. Nematodes enter the Weevil Larvae & release a small pellet of bacteria that kills the host after a few days. The parasitic worms begin to reproduce, releasing several thousand more juvenile infective nematodes which are able to find & kill further weevil grubs. 

Species controlled: Black Vine Weevil (Otiorhynchus Sulcatus) & other soil living larvae. 

When to use: Autumn & Spring are the main seasons for nematode application, although additional treatments may be needed for heated or protected crops. It is important that the soil or compost is kept moist & not not water logged. They will work as low as 5°C allowing applications to be made whenever the pest is active. Apply as a drench using a conventional sprayer, dilutor, watering can or through most irrigation lines. In all cases remove any fine filters & ensure water temperature is between 5 and 15°C. 

Rates of use: Container plants: The 50 million pack treats up to 100 m2, 250 million up to 500 m2Open ground treatments: The 50 million pack treats up to 50 m2, 250 million up to 250 m2.
