About this deal

Steinernema carpocapsae is also particularly effective against insect larvae, including various webworms, cutworms, armyworms, girdlers, some weevils, and wood-borers. And I would think conditions are good for them right now, as it has been rainy ever since I applied the nematodes. Unlike some of our other nematode treatments this does not kill the ants, it just drives them out of their nests and makes them go elsewhere. If applying in hot weather it is better to wait till later in the day when the ground won’t dry out so quickly. S. carpocapsae tends to be most effective when applied against highly mobile surface-adapted insects.

The parasitic nematode, Steinernema feltiae, can be used as a non-chemical control for black, red and yellow ants.The nematodes aggravate the ants which they can't tolerate so they move their nests away from the treated area. They are safer, more effective, but slower acting than a contact action pesticide which kills the adult ant but not the young larvae underground. Our expert lawn care technicians are trained to properly handle and use nematodes to ensure your lawn receives the best possible treatment. Nematodes are safe to use on the lawn without any precautions associated with chemicals, so children and pets will be allowed on the lawn immediately after the treatment has been carried out. So, I slowly poured about one quarter of the solution onto and around the lawn colony, then did the same for the patio one.

There are thousands of species, some of which are harmful to plants, but many others are parasites of insects. Use Nemasys® No Ants to deal with an ant infestation, without any of the precautions associated with chemical use. This biological control contains millions of nematodes to control ants safely with no danger to children, pets or wildlife. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Add approximately 2 gallons (5 litres) of water into the watering can in water and leave the pouch in the mixture until the application is complete.As an ambush forager, Steinernema carpocapsae is especially effective when applied against highly mobile surface-adapted insects and below-ground insects are also controlled by this nematode.

Add one third of the bucket contents to a watering can and fill the watering can with additional water. Since Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum and topsoil can be heavy, and the pallet trolley pulled by the driver has small wheels, pallets cannot be delivered onto soil, grass or gravel – a tarmac or paved surface is required. After applying nematodes, additional water should be applied to the treated area to wash nematodes into the nests. The soil temperature is generally warmer than the air temperature so the nematodes can survive the odd frost and slightly lower night time temperatures.

Nematodes are capable of surviving the odd frost; so don't worry if the temperature falls after you have applied the nematodes. I have purchased and used two packets of nematodes and have not seen any clear proof that they do anything to the ants nests, they are still shoving up earth all over the lawn.

After you've read this, you'll probably want to take action right away to rid your home and your lawn of those unwanted insects. Nemasys No Ants is a product containing microscopic worms (nematodes) which are natural predators of ants.

Start spraying ant hills first and keep spraying complete spraying outwards to provide total nematode coverage. In certain cases, especially where a large number of ant nests are located, there may be the need to complete additional treatments to clear the lawn of ants. There are many different species of ants, some can bite and sting, but mostly they are simply a problem because they are irritating to have around. Black, red and yellow ants do not tolerate nematodes near their nests, so tend to migrate away from nematode infested areas. Keep lawn moist for the next 3 days (or 1 week in dry weather) to ensure nematodes are flushed down into the root zone where feeding larvae are present.g. where ant hills are visible) and continue to apply to areas where you want to repel further ant nests from being established. We also use different external services like Google Webfonts, Google Maps and external Video providers. It can take up to 21 days to see the true benefits from using the nematodes however you should notice a significant difference within the first two weeks.
