Details

Wireworm are the larvae of the common click beetle and they have along life cycle of up to 5 years, so they can be hard to control. Wireworms are a soil based pest that attack potatoes, carrots and other root crops in late summer and autumn. Control wireworms by watering Wireworm Nematodes into the soil when the soil temp is 12°C /54°F and the pest is present i.e. normally May to Sept.

Wireworm Nematodes contain natural Heterorhabditis bacteriophora nematodes, which are effective at controlling wireworms and are safe to use on food crops and are safe for children, pets and wildlife. It is supplied as a powder which is mixed with water and applied to the soil through a watering can or for larger areas use a Hose-end Feeder / Nematode Applicator. The nematodes should be applied when the soil temp is 12°C /54°F and the pest is present (anytime between May and September). Apply plenty of water after application, so that the nematodes are washed into the soil where they can find the wireworms. As with all nematodes, order when you are ready to apply as they are perishable. Each pack of Wireworm Nematodes treats 100 sqm / 125 sq. yds - it must be used all at once once opened, so to treat a smaller area, just make the solution more concentrated (it is impossible to overdose). N.B. Due to the extended lifecycle, you may need to apply for a number of years to clear the pest.

N.B. Wireworm Nematodes need a soil temperature of 12°C and are a perishable product (it will keep for approx 2 weeks in the fridge)so please order when you are ready to apply.
