Technical Comments

It is important that the soil or compost is kept moist (not water logged) during application.

Activity / Control

Black vine weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus) and other soil living larvae. The nematode worms seek vine weevil larvae in moist soil and compost, larger weevil grubs are more easily located. Nematodes enter the weevil larvae and 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 able to find and kill further weevil grubs

Application Method

Autumn and spring are the main seasons for nematode application, although additional treatments may be needed for heated or protected crops.

Application Rate

Container plants: The 250 million pack treats up to 500 m2. Open ground treatments: The 250 million pack treats up to up to 250 m2.
