Controlling Vine Weevils Naturally Vine Weevil is a major pest BOTH under-glass and in the garden, where it can have devastating effects often causing the death of plants. Control vine weevil naturally by positioning Nematop Adult Vine Weevil Traps under your plants in the summer i.e. NOW to control the adults and then apply Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer in the autumn (or when grubs are discovered) to kill the grubs.
 

N.B. We are getting LOTS of reports of people discovering grubs AND spotting adults, so they want to use BOTH the Nematop Adult Vine Weevil Traps AND Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer NOW. We have BOTH available and it is safe to use both together.

 

Controlling Adult Vine Weevils - Adult vine weevils feed on plant foliage taking distinctive "U" shaped notches from the edge of the leaf (pictured left). Adults are about 1cm long, brownish black with drab yellow spots on their backs (pictured right). They are nocturnal and unable to fly, but being quick moving they are difficult to spot. They are fond of rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas as well as herbaceous plants. They only munch the edge of the leaf, which is unsightly. N.B. Leaf damage is a sure sign of vine weevil activity, so check for the more destructive grubs in the roots of your plants.

 

Nematop Adult Vine Weevil Trap - Each trap consists of a wooden board, that has 3 grooves filled with a gel containing 2.5 million nematodes (Steinernema carpocapsae). The boards are placed face down directly onto the ground beneath your plants and as they absorb water, the gel swells up and "oozes" out under the board creating a "cushion " of gel under the board in contact with the soil. The adult beetles will crawl into the grooves looking for a sheltered spot to hide in during the day. The nematodes in the gel will then infect the adult beetles and safely kill them without harming anything else - these traps are safe for children, pets and wildlife. Each trap will control adult beetles in a 10 sqm area or 4m of hedging and each trap is effective for approx 6 weeks. They are ideal for protecting hedges, patio gardens, raised beds or amongst your most vulnerable or valuable plants.


Controlling Vine Weevil Grubs - Vine weevil grubs attack the roots of plants. The grubs over-winter in the roots and emerge as adults in late spring / summer. These adults lay eggs in the rootballs of plants. The eggs hatch and feed before over-wintering and then the whole process starts again. Vine weevil grubs grow to about 1cm and are creamy coloured and crescent shaped with an orange head. Affected plants will wilt even though the soil/compost is moist and as more of the roots are destroyed the plant will eventually topple over. Control vine weevils naturally by applying Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer as soon as you discover grubs (and the soil temp is 5c) or when the grubs are at their most destructive i.e. in the Spring and Autumn.

 
Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer - Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer contains the natural nematode, Steinernema Kraussei, which is effective at controlling vine weevil grubs, but is totally safe for children, pets and wildlife and can be used on edible crops too! It comes as a powder simply mix with water and apply like a liquid feed to the soil around the roots.  Once applied, the nematodes seek out the vine weevil grubs and invade them. They multiply inside the grub turning it brown and papery before it disintegrates.The nematodes are then released back into the soil to get rid of more grubs. Easy! Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer is a perishable, living product, so it is sent out fresh by Royal Mail 1st class post. Being a perishable, living product, it must be used before the expiry date (which is marked on the inside of the pack and will be at least 2 weeks) and it must be stored in the fridge until it is needed. Once opened, the contents do not keep, so it must be used in one day - do NOT store the made up solution or powder

 

Special Offer - We are getting LOTS of reports of people discovering grubs AND spotting adults, so they want to use BOTH the Nematop Adult Vine Weevil Traps AND Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer NOW. We have BOTH available, so buy both for delivery ASAP and save money.

"Can't praise your products enough, this nemasys stuff really works...had a bad problem with vine weevil a few years ago, but have been using your stuff each year and it really keeps it under control, not lost one plant since using it (fingers crossed it keeps that way)...only seen ONE adult so far and only one plant slightly nibbled."

Controlling Flies - Did you know that the lifecycle of the housefly is 28 days, but in ideal conditions it can be as little as a week and with each female fly laying over 100 eggs each time, it does not take long for fly numbers to quickly multiply, so use our Hanging Flytraps and new Prism Indoor Flycatcher to keep them under-control.

 

Special Offer - Be ready for summer and buy a Hanging Fly Trap Twin Pack for £12.50 saving £2.49 or buy 6 Traps for £30.00 saving a further £7.50.

 

Special Offer - Hanging Flytraps - These flytraps are designed to be reusable and use an effective attractant developed by professionals to attract huge numbers of flies, which are then trapped. Designed to be used OUTDOORS - simply add the bait and some water and hang where the traps where they will get some sunlight. After 24 hours the bait activate and will keep working for 2-4 weeks. Once full, the trap can be emptied onto your compost heap or disposed of in the household waste and then they can be reused by simply adding a fresh sachet of attractant. Each trap will attract flies from up to 10m away. Use the Hanging Flytrap in your garden, near kennels, compost heaps or areas where you eat to keep flies at bay. Refills are available, so they can be used time and time again.

 

New Prism Flyctacher - The new Prism Flycatcher uses the combination of a UV light to attract flies and then a glue board to catch them and is very effective. Designed to be sleek and ultra-stylish and with a striking aluminium façade it doesn’t look out of place in the kitchen, lounge or conservatory. The Prism Flycatcher is easy to use – simply insert the glue board in the back, turn on the light and position in the darkest part of the room to be protected. The Prism Flycatcher will work best if it is positioned away from other light sources i.e. windows and is designed to be left on all the time, but will work best at night when all other lights are off i.e. leave it on at night to catch flies while you are asleep! It can be either freestanding or it comes with fixings, so it can be wall mounted. The UV light shines out from the sides, top and front to maximise light output and for the maximum catch rate. The specially designed folded glue board means the board is easily removed without having to come into contact with caught insects and it is easy to insert a new board once it is full – replacement boards will be available soon and one is included with each unit.

SB Invigorator - Use SB Invigorator natural spray to control pests during the autumn and winter when it is too cold to use beneficial insects i.e. in unheated greenhouses / conservatories. There are no harmful chemical residues left behind, so beneficial insects can be introduced AS SOON as the temperatures are warm enough in the spring.

SB Invigorator - This 'three in one' natural spray controls a range of pests in a safe and effective way PLUS it also controls fungal diseases and it contains a foliar feed to help plants recover from pest attack. SB Plant Invigorator is not only highly effective, but it is also biodegradable and non toxic. As there are no harmful chemical residues left behind, beneficial insects can then be introduced as soon as the spray has dried. SB Plant Invigorator can be used in the garden, conservatory or in the greenhouse and most importantly can be used on edible plants - pick and eat straightway.


 

SB Invigorator is brilliant at clearing heavy infestations BEFORE introducing a natural control. Here the spray has been applied twice at 2 day intervals to kill a heavy infestation of mealy bug before introducing cryptolaemus. The first spray removes the protective wax from the pest, which normally makes it so difficult to control and then the subsequent spray 2 days later kills the pest. As no harmful chemical residues are left behind, the cryptolameus were immediately introduced to give on-going pest control.

SB Invigorator is available as a 500ml ready to use spray, as a 250ml concentrate (makes 25 litres of spray) or as a 1 litre super concentrate (makes 500 litres) for use in your own sprayer.

"Hi guys just wanted to say that your  SB Invigorator has magical properties ...it has yet again brought my tomatoe plants back to life after spider mite damage. Without it I might have given up growing tomatoe and pepper plants all together. Purchased the slug nematodes a few weeks ago and haven't seen any slugs since not even on my freshly planted out courgette and squash plants which normally act as slug attractants... more magic from the green gardeners.
Love you guys."
