Nemasys Fruit and Veg Protection is a unique mix of different nematode species to target a broad range of pests. Produced especially for the home gardener, it is so easy to use that the gardener does not have to worry about application times or thorough investigations as to what the pests actually are, just follow the programme. Nemasys Fruit and Veg Protection is safe on food crops and suitable for use of organic crops. It will not harm pets, children, wildlife or bees.
Nemasys recommends that you apply their nematodes fortnightly as part of your watering programme to kill the pests. In so doing providing protection throughout the critical period when root fly attacks.
Nemasys Fruit and Veg Protection has been especially formulated to control some of the most common fruit and vegetable pests. Nematodes kill target pests, in one of two ways, depending on the pest. For pests in the soil, such as root fly maggots, you apply the nematodes as a drench to the soil where they will be. For pests on the plant, such as caterpillars you spray the solution directly onto the pest. Start applying the nematodes when you plant out.
Alternatively, should you be wishing to control a specific pest - you can apply the nematodes at the correct times which they will have most effect. See the application guide at the bottom of this page.
Ants are the exception, ants do not tolerate the nematodes near their nests and move the nests away from these areas. You can use Nemasys nematodes to target both soil borne and above ground pests. For instance whilst you are drenching the soil to target carrot root fly, you can also save a little of the solution to spray the soil in your greenhouse for sciarid fly. Equally you can be spraying for caterpillars and if ants are also in the vicinity you can target them at the same time.
When killing above surface pests like cabbage white caterpillars and thrips make sure you spray the pests you want to kill directly with the nematode solution. The great benefit of Nemasys Fruit and Veg Protection is that it provides a simple solution to target key insect pests, with regular application you need not worry about these troublesome critters.
For little outlay to treat 60 sqm the nematodes provide economic control that is safe and suitable for use on organic crops. Use Nemasys Fruit and Veg Protection together with Nemaslug to kill slugs and you will have protection against all the key pests, you can then concentrate on nurturing your plants for great quality produce.
As Nemasys products are not chemicals, they are safe on food crops and do not harm pets, children, wildlife or bees. When the pest dies the nematodes die back to their natural soil numbers.
