Chafer Grub Killer 500 square metres contains 250 million Heterorhabditis sp nematodes for applying to lawns and turf areas against Chafer grubs.

Chafer grubs eat grass roots, turning lawns yellow and attract animals like Badgers and birds, which then proceed to rip up lawns to feed on the chafer grubs. This secondary damage can often be worse than the damage from the Chafer grubs.

The nematodes are watered into the soil , where they search out and kill Chafer grub larvae. They should be applied when the soil is warmer and when Chafer grubs are present . The optimium time for application is between the end of July and October. They should not be applied in the spring when the soil is cold, as the soil will not be warm enough for Heterorhabditis to be active.

Lawns should be watered prior to application and after application to aid the entry of the nematodes into the soil beneath the turf. Application can be with watering cans, motorized sprayers or knapsack sprayers. Any filters in sprayers should be removed. Application can also be made with a Hose end feeder, which is Dragonfli product Bio-01-110 Nematode Hose end feeder applicator. This provides a faster method of application for larger areas.

Annual application of Chafer Grub Killer nematodes maybe required to control and contain chafer grub populations.

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
