Natural Pest Control in the Winter Months

By Rob 5 years ago

Natural Pest Control in the Winter Months

Although pests are less active in the winter, they don't go away completely. When it's colder outside pests are more likely to seek the warmth of indoors, especially greenhouses, sheds and our homes. You may not need to apply natural pest control solutions regularly until the upcoming spring, but its very important that you apply your chosen pest control up until their availability expires. Most of our Natural pest control products have an expiry date of 3 weeks to 1 month after manufacture.

We offer each product during the periods of which each pest is active, and when the product will be most effective.

Nemasys Leather Jacket Killer– Available to apply until Early October

Leatherjackets feed on grass roots from early September through to spring, leaving yellow patches and weak roots behind them. In summer they pupate, emerging in the autumn to lay their eggs and start the cycle all over again.

The Steinernema feltiae nematodes in this powder treatment are the natural enemies of Leatherjackets. As with all our Nematodes they are safe for children, pets and wildlife - your lawn can be used immediately after treatment.



Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer – Available to apply until End of October


Vine Weevil attack the leaves of plants, taking unsightly bites out of the edges. They lay their eggs in soil or compost, making them hard to spot, and the grubs into which these hatch can be found in containers as well as in the roots of herbaceous plants, young trees and shrubs.

They are especially partial to azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias. Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer is the safest, most effective control against all species of vine weevil. Completely poison-free, the Heterorhabditis bacteriophora or Steinernema kraussei nematodes it contains are so safe that you can, as with all Nemasys solutions, use them on food crops such as strawberries and herbs.



Nemaslug  - Available to apply until End of October








The only one we've found that kills slugs without harming everything else is Nemaslug. Each packet of Nemaslug powder contains millions of microscopic Nematodes that you simply water into your garden. Works against all slug species and is safe for children and wildlife, although we recommend that you keep it away from ponds.



Nemasys No Ants – Available to Apply until the end of September




We all know what a problem ants can cause, not only in your lawn but also in wormeries. Well, finally, we think we have the answer - Ant Nematodes (Steinernema feltiae). These microscopic nematodes infect the ant's larval stage and reduce the numbers.

Each standard pack treats up to sixteen ant nests. If you're really suffering we also have a large scale pack which is can treat up to 50 nests or 50sqm.
