About this deal

You will need to treat all of your plants that are planted in potting soil, not just the ones showing signs of infestation.

S. feltiae can be used as a stand-alone control option, in combination with other BCAs such as Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis, Hypoaspis aculeifer, H. For a 1 litre sprayer we suggest no more than 25 million nematodes to 1 litre of water or the mixture will become too thick. We offer a 10m 2 kit containing both the nematodes and yellow sticky traps, or a 20m 2 pack size depending on the area you need to treat.Fungus gnat maggots (larvae) are white-bodied with black heads and can be found just under the surface of the potting medium/soil. Fungus gnats spread through flying adults, and can also be brought onto location through larvae contaminated soil. Fungus gnats, small dark colored flies sometimes mistaken for mosquitoes, can be a real headache for anyone with potted indoor plants or interiorscapes. Common egg-laying sites include moist organic debris/potting soil, decaying wood (mulch), and ground cover plants.

The sticky traps are supplied as a pack of 5 that will attract and catch a wide variety of house plant insect pests including: Adult Fungus Fly, Thrip, Whitefly and Aphids. When using as a curative treatment for an existing problem, best results are obtained by two separate applications 10-14 days apart. Biological pest control is a method of controlling pests by understanding their life cycle and finding a natural enemy to parasitize the pest at a certain life cycle stage. Larvae quickly build up resistance to chemical control methods, and these chemicals can also negatively impact on the plant growth particularly in younger plants.This is due to the vast majority of live products, hardware and seed items being sent out from separate warehouses and the costs involved.

Fungus gnats thrive in moist, saturated conditions, so cultural practices should be utilized to limit freestanding water and over-saturated growing media. If adding to an irrigation system strain out any of the packing Material and remove any fine filters to allow the nematodes to travel through the system. NemaKnights TM gives you a natural, biological control of a Fungus Gnat (adults and larvae) Thrips Control, Root Aphid and larval soil pests in containers and gardens indoor and outdoor. If populations of fungus gnats are observed on yellow sticky cards or potato slices that exceed grower-defined action thresholds, biological or chemical control options are warranted. If you were to squeeze the pot 1 or 2 drops of water would come out, so not waterlogged but not dry.miles) helps break up the life cycle and eventually controls fungus gnat infestations by feeding on larvae and pupae. They are completely compatible with beneficial insects such as ladybugs, lacewings, and praying mantids and do not harm earthworms. Fungus gnat flies are black or gray in color with clear wings, relatively small (3-4 mm) in size and commonly associated with compost and natural soils with high organic contents. They also carry fungal spores from plant to plant which can result in the spread of diseases such as Pythium, Phytophthora and Chalara. Applying with more water is better but consider that you need to deliver the nematodes near the surface for some products.

The traps are perfectly suited to protecting plants growing on window sills, individual plants in pots, and for plants and cuttings at propagation stage. Since nematodes travel in a moist environment, the area to be treated should be watered before application and for several days after application. The nematodes can only travel through/live in moist soil, so they will not leave your plant pots/containers and will die out naturally once the weevil larvae are killed. Then water all your plants and do not try to achieve full drain as that will leach out the nematodes. Effects of application rates of Steinernema feltiae (Nematoda: Steinernematidae) on control of the mushroom sciarid fly, Lycoriella auripila (Diptera: Sciaridae).

Curative – When applied as a curative for an existing pest problem, a higher dosage is required as indicated in the treatment application coverage. The potting medium (Ball-mix, Nursery-mix or Pro-mix) can influence the survival, persistence and efficacy of entomopathogenic nematodes in greenhouse production. If using a watering can stir and pour a portion of the liquid into the watering can and add more water, then water pots or affected soil. GENERAL INFORMATION: Fungus Gnat Control (Steinernema feltiae) are microscopic in size and cannot be seen with the naked eye. House Plant Boost is an organic liquid fertiliser that improves the strength and resistance of your plants, where our Fungus Fly Killer Nematodes and Mini Tulip Sticky Traps will offer protection by killing common house plant pests.
