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.
