Ant Killing Nematodes
Ant Killing Nematodes was £11.95 now £9.95
Ant nests can be a real problem to control in border soils and lawns causing raised areas of soil and disruption to plant roots. They can be controlled with parasitic nematodes. Water the nematodes directly into the nest using a watering can. Apply April to September to a well-watered lawn or border. Soil temperature must be at least 10º C and ants should be active. The microscopic transparent worm controls both black and red ants. Treatment can be repeated. One pack will treat up to 6 nests. Safe for children pets wildlife near food crops. Safe to use the lawn directly after application. Nematodes will attack the young Ant larvae so allow 10-14 days for visible effect. They are safer more effective but slower acting than a contact action pesticide which kills the adult ant but not the young larvae underground When you receive your pack of Ant Killing Nematodes the unopened pack may be stored in a fridge up to the shelf life shown on the package usually 1 to 2 weeks. Once opened the entire pack contents should be used immediately
