Save your fruit from caterpillar damage with nematodes applied in September and October.
Sold in packs of 1 x 60 sqm, 2 x 60 sqm or 3 x 60 sqm, all our prices include P&P. Orders placed by 10am Monday will be despatched later in the week.
These multitarget parasitic nematodes target Codling Moth & Oriental Fruit Moth and are best treated September/October and when air temperatures are 14° to 30°.
The nematode solution is applied to the branches, the soil under them and the trunk. This should be done once the caterpillars have left the fruit hence the September/October recommended timing.
If there are lots of fruit trees in the surrounding areas (i.e. your neighbour's gardens) the treatment is unlikely to be effective at the pest will come in from other trees the following year.
We sell the 60 sqm packs in sets of two or three so that the programmes above can be adhered to, you can store the second (and third pack in the fridge for 2-3 weeks until needed)
