CONTROL FUNGUS GNATS WITH NEMATODES
nemaplus® contains nematodes of the species Steinernema feltiae for biological control of larvae of the fungus gnat.
Mode of action
The nematodes penetrate the larvae of the fungus gnats and secrete a bacterium that kills the larvae. In the larvae, the nematodes multiply and infect more larvae. This process repeats until the nematodes find no more hosts or all larvae are killed. The SF nematodes are specialized on the larvae of fungus gnats and are completely harmless to humans and pets.
APPLICATION OF NEMAPLUS®
nemaplus® can be used all year round as long as the soil temperature does not fall below 8°C. Immediately after application, the plants should be watered so that the nematodes adhering to the plant parts also reach the soil. The treated areas should not be allowed to dry out for the next few weeks.
Mix nematode solution
Apply nemaplus® as soon as possible after receipt according to the instructions on the package. Nematodes are not evenly distributed in the powder formulation. Therefore, always mix the entire contents of the package in the specified amount of water. Stir the mixed suspension every 15 minutes to keep the nematodes in suspension. Fill the required amount at a time and apply immediately. Use up the suspension completely; it cannot be stored.
Proper application of nematodes
The substrate should be moist, but not wet. Nematodes cannot swim and therefore cannot move in waterlogged substrate. Since they are sensitive to direct sunlight, nemaplus® should be applied outdoors under overcast skies or in the morning or evening hours, if possible.
