Fungus Fly Killer nematodes for the control of fungus fly larvae, also known as sciarid fly larvae. These tiny flies lay eggs in compost or soil that develop into tiny larvae that feed on organic matter and plant roots. In high numbers they can damage young plants and spread soil borne diseases such as pythium. Once they develop into adults they bocome a nusiance pest forming small cluds of flies when disturbed.

An effective and safe method of control is with the use of Steinernema feltiae nematodes. These minute worm like creatures are watered into the compost or soil. The nematodes then seek out the sciarid fly/fungus fly larvae and kill the larvae, using the larvae as a reproduction site from which many more nematodes are produced. The nematodes are harmless to humans, wildlife and pets and provide a safe, natural form of pest control. Fungus Fly Killer nematodes break the life cycle of the fungus fly , so that after a short period of time, there is a dramatic reduction in the number of larvae and therefore a corresponding drop in fungus fly numbers. The nematodes start to work shortly after application.

The Fungus Fly Killer nematode 50 million pack contains enough nematodes to treat an area up to 100 square metres or approx. up to 2000 2 litre pots.
