Leatherjacket Killer 100 square metres  contains 50 million nematodes [ Steinernema carpocapsae ] for the biological control of Leatherjacket larvae in lawns. This is a natural solution for leatherjackets in lawns. Leatherjackets are the larvae of crane flies, otherwise known as Daddy-long-Legs. The majority of the eggs are laid late summer and develop into Leatherjacket larvae in the late summer- early autumn. The larvae feed on grass roots. In high numbers this kills off large areas of grass turning lawns yellow. Secondary damage from animals and birds can be caused as they come and feed on the larvae. This reults in areas of lawn being ripped up.

Leatherjacket Killer is easily applied as the nematodes are watered into infested areas between August and October. A spring application can also be made but will need repeating in the late summer Augsut - October.

The nematodes in Leatherjacket Killer penetrate and kill the L1 and L2 stages of the Leatherjacket larvae. They are harmless to wildlife, pets and humans.

One pack of Leatherjacket Killer will treat an area up to 100 square metres in size. Leatherjacket Killer is supplied as 2 packs of  25 million  nematodes.

For a faster application to lawns, try our Hose end feeder.

Orders will be dispatched in August-October

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.
