Beneficial organisms from nature
Nematodes are propagated in bioreactors under controlled conditions.

Biotechnological processes rely on the forces and potentials that nature makes available to us. Some of these potentials have been used for many hundreds of years, such as in brewing beer or baking with yeast fungi.
One of the most fascinating areas of application is the use of biological organisms in bicocontrol, this includes the use of natural enemies against pests.
We produce natural enemies of insect pests - beneficial nematodes - using biotechnological processes. In large bioreactors, we reproduce the conditions in the insect under which the nematodes would multiply in nature. In our bioreactors, nematodes and their symbiotic bacteria grow in a sterile environment.
In further process steps, the nematodes are extracted from their fermentation broth and processed into products suitable for storage and use.
Mode of action
The finished products reach the user by mail, where the nematodes immediately begin their valued work after application:
1 - Nematodes actively search for insect larvae and penetrate them through natural openings.
2 - Bacteria are released and multiply: the larva dies.
3 - Nematodes feed on the bacteria, grow and multiply.
4 - Thousands of young nematodes leave the dead larva and search for new larvae.
