Talks on Biological Controls

Last year we were invited by two local horticultural societies to give talks about biological controls illustrated by our own microscope images. Clips from the talks can be viewed here (YouTube) This year we thought we would spread the word further... Here is our list of talks for 2016 Forthcoming Talks at Gardening Clubs

If you would like us to give a talk for your society, and you are within an hours drive from Lewes, then please do contact us.

Leatherjackets, leatherjackets and more leatherjackets

Many gardeners are phoning us with lawn problems, and it appears that the main culprit is still leatherjackets. We are advising people who have a really bad problem to try a treatment in spring this year, rather than wait until the Autumn. More about leatherjackets

New ideas for caterpillar control

Caterpillars come in many shapes and sizes, and many of them are a real problem in the garden. We have recently introduced a very general caterpillar control which we hope will target many of the common problems. Do give us feedback as there is not a lot of research on which caterpillars are vulnerable outside commercial horticulture.... more on caterpillar cards

Other new products to tackle the adults

Pest clinic service

Over the past few years we are starting to build up some really useful experience with common garden pests and we have been using our computer microscope here to help customers identifying their problems. You will see some of the pictures we have been taken on the "Pests" pages of our web site, and we are planning to include the videos soon. If you have any soil or leaf pest that is puzzling you then please do send in some live creatures for us to examine. Just protect them by putting them in a little box or tube and then pop them in the post and send them to:
