Neudorff Nematodes – biological plant protection
Nematodes are very small roundworms that can be found in almost every ecosystem on earth. Some species of these tiny creatures are predatory and can be utilised in horticulture for the control of many soil bourne pests. Nematodes kill larval pests, thereby stopping the damage they cause to plants and lawns. They first enter the pest larvae and inject it with bacteria, causing death. Nematodes will then eat the dead body, multiply and immediately start searching for a new host. Once their source of food is exhausted the nematodes will themselves die, leaving behind no evidence of them ever being there.
How to identify which product I need:
- Damage to the lawn – it can look like malnutrition or in need of over seeding with small white grubs with pincers in the soil – Chafer Grub.
- Damage to the lawn – it can look like malnutrition or in need of over seeding with brown/black grubs without pincers in the soil – Leatherjacket.
