Carrot root fly larvae cause extensive damage to carrots. The larvae burrow into carrots and disfigure carrots. Adult carrot root fly emerge from pupae in the soil from April and then lay fresh eggs that develop into more harmful carrot root fly larvae. There are several generations a year of Carrot root fly larvae. Adult carrot roof fly also search for new crops of carrots to lay eggs next to. Carrot root fly traps can be used to detect Carrot root fly adult activity and help reduce egg laying.

For control of Carrot root fly larvae,  nematodes can be watered into soil and raised beds. The nematodes find and enter the carrot root fly larvae releasing a bacteria that kills the carrot root fly larvae. The nematodes then use the body of the larvae to reproduce in, releasing more nematodes into the surrounding area.  Carrot root fly nematodes will stay active in the soil for about 3-4 weeks , so may need re-applying for any fresh infestations of carrot root fly.

Carrot Root Fly Killer nematodes are watered into the soil/ raised beds. Avoid applying on a sunny day , as nematodes UV sensitive and apply the nematodes to moist soil and keep the soil moist after application. This enables the nematodes to move in the soil to find the carrot root fly larvae.

Carrot Root Fly Killer :

  • Provides safe, natural and biological pest control of carrot roof fly larvae
  • Treats an area up to 20 square metres
  • Chemical free control
  • Carrot root fly larvae cannot become resistant to nematodes

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.

It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult.

Red bird mite [ Dermanyssus gallinae ] causes significant stress to infected birds and anemia, which  sometimes leads to death. Birds show signs of nervousness and even cannibalism.

Chickens/ hens  and other birds infected with Red Mite also see a drop in egg laying.

ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.

Androlis is available in 3 sizes M, L XL
