Cutworm and Onion Fly
Apply April to July, after planting. Repeat fortnightly throughout the growing season when pests are present. Apply as a drench around the roots of plants or where the pest is present. Fortnightly application maintains control and catches subsequent generations.
The Sciarid is primarily a greenhouse pest. Apply when pest is present and repeat as necessary to control subsequent hatching Apply to soil in pots, growing bags and open soil.
Caterpillars and Gooseberry Sawfly
Apply as soon as the caterpillars are first seen applying to all leaf surfaces where the pest is present. Make sure to spray pests with a solution as caterpillars not directly sprayed will not be controlled. Repeat as necessary.
Codling moth/ Plum fruit moth
Pheromone traps are the best way of tackling this orchard pest. However, after severe infestations, applying these nematodes in Autumn to the soil around the base of the trees and up to one metre up the trunk using a watering can or sprayer can help reduce problems in the following season.
Covering vegetables with Agralan Enviromesh is the best method of stopping this pest's larvae, which feed on the roots of carrots, parsnips, celery, celeriac and parsley. Where this is not practical, for example for those growing a small number of these vegetables among others, applying the nematodes with a watering can or hose end feeder to soil can provide control.
