Nemasys® C is based on the beneficial nematode Steinernema carpocapsae and provides control for a wide range of pests including codling moth, oriental fruit moth, shore flies and large pine weevil.
Nemasys® C – advanced biological control
Beneficial nematodes are microscopic worms (< 1 mm long) that attack and kill targeted insects, without affecting any other organisms. Within the infected insect, the beneficial nematodes continually reproduce and then spread out for long-term control.
Nemasys® C contains Steinernema carpocapsae beneficial nematodes that protect crops and plants from damage caused by a broad range of pests including codling moth, shore flies, flea, billbug and bluegrass weevil larvae, as well as cutworm, armyworm, sod webworm, tropical sod webworms and chinch bugs.
How to use
Remove all fine filters (50 mesh or smaller) from the application equipment. Partly fill the tank with cool, clean water. Start the agitator and keep running until application is completed. Empty one tray into a bucket and add a minimum of 10 litres water. Stir the contents thoroughly making sure the entire product is mixed. Add nematode suspension into the tank through its sieve. Fill tank to the required water level. Add a wetting agent to the mixture if desired (consult your distributor for compatible products). Apply dose immediately to the whole crop at the appropriate rate weeks after.
