Nemasys Codling Moth Killer
From: Plant Protection : Biological Controls
Nemasys Codling Moth Killer can be used as both a stand-alone or follow-up treatment to keep a check on codling moth larvae in the late summer and autumn. It's hats off to the 20 million, naturally occurring beneficial nematodes (steinernema carpocapse) contained in each pack as they do the hard work in killing the pupae of the codling moth on fruit trees and in the soil underneath.
Nemasys Codling Moth Killer is supplied in a pack of three treatments, each of which is applied weekly over a three week period; it can only be used between September and October and temperatures must be in excess of 14°C. Apply Nemasys Codling Moth Killer to the ground below the tree and to the tree trunk itself, where pupae overwinter - a single pack will treat up to 20 trees (40m2).
- Wet the area before applying the nematodes and apply with a pump sprayer or watering can
- Avoid applications in bright sunlight, apply during evenings or dull conditions.
- Use entire packet at one time and do not store made up solution
- Use to control the over wintering pupae on trees and ground from September till October when daytime temperatures are above 14°C
- Apply each of the 3 applications to the same area at 5 to 7 day intervals to ensure all hatchings are killed |Apply to the trunk of the tree/main branches and to an area of soil equal to the tree cover above
- If treating less than 20 trees increase the rate of application
- Completely safe to use around children, pets and wildlife
Pump Sprayer Example
- Trees have to be treated at a rate of 0.5 litre per tree.
- For example, using a 3 litre pump sprayer to treat 12 trees, half the pack would be used at a time, treating 6 trees with each application
