Stop codling moths ruining your apple and pear crop by treating with Nemasys Fruit and Veg Nematodes in the Autumn i.e. Sept / Oct to target the larval stage of the pest. Have you ever bitten into an apple and instead of a nice crunchy apple, discovered a grub and a rotten core? This is the larvae of the codling moth, which feeds on the inside of the apple before burrowing its way out to pupate. It then drops to the floor to over-winter in the leaf litter beneath the tree or under loose bark. Applying to the trunk, branches and soil beneath the tree (treat an area the same size as the canopy of the tree) will target the larval stage. We send you 2 PACKS – each pack treats 60 sqm or approx 16 small trees and should be applied TWICE at fortnightly intervals – use one pack straight away and pop the other in the fridge. Then repeat the treatment 2 weeks later using the 2nd pack. N.B. F&V Nematodes are a perishable product (it will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge)so order when you are ready to apply or select your dispatch date below.

How is it sent? – Nemasys F&V Nematodes 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. 1 or 2 packs will go through your letterbox and should be popped in the fridge as soon as possible – they are fine on the doormat while you are at work. N.B. Large orders i.e. 5 or more large packs will not fit through the letterbox, so someone will need to be in to receive it.

How to apply? – Apply to the soil with a watering can or hose end feeder to control soil based insect pests OR apply with a sprayer to controlling caterpillars and thrip.

    I ordered the codling moth nematodes. They came straight away. I followed the instructions and hopefully the nematodes did too.

    Efficient. Nematodes accompanied by good instructions.

    Deliveries always come promptly. I am very pleased to be able to buy nature-friendly pest control which Green Gardener provides. I have been using their nematodes for codling moths for a couple of years now. It is not a miracle cure but I am getting a lot of apples with no maggot damage now. Hopefully each year it will get better still.

    We bought some Nematodes for our large Bramley apple tree, no matter what we do, or did they always succumb to the codling moth, so hopefully only time will tell. The replies and advice was always very helpful and a very quick response, so thank you.
