500,000,000 in a plastic box
Type: Microscopic nematodes.
How it works: A special formulation for spraying, the nematodes swim through a film of water & enter the mine to attack & kill the larva within.
Species controlled: More than 230 insect pests are susceptible, including: Black Vine Weevils, Cabbage Root Maggots, Codling Moth Larvae, Corn Earworm, Cucumber Beetles, Cutworms, Flea Beetles, Flea Larvae, Fungus Gnat Larvae, Japanese Beetle Larvae, Root Maggots, Sod Webworms & Wireworms, Leafminer, Western Flower Thrips & all ants but will target any other bug they come into contact with on their travels.
When to use: At any time of the year, ideal at temperatures above 16°C. Do not use under strong lights or when the sprayed crop is likely to dry within 3 to 4 hours. A series of 4 or 5 weekly sprays is best to control a population.
Preventative: 50 million per 400 m2or 250 million per 2000 m2.
Standard control: 50 million per 200 m2or 250 million per 1000 m2.
Top tip – Make sure to mix a little with water and drench each pot, don’t mix the whole pack into a res and water from there because they sink to the bottom and will not be distributed evenly.
