The Garden Chafer trap catches adult garden chafer beetles [Phyllopertha horticola]. The trap uses an attractant lure to attract and catch adult beetles. Once the beetles fly to the trap they hit the plastic vanes on the top of the trap, which funnels them down into the trap, where they are un-able to escape.

The Garden Chafer trap alerts gardeners and lawnkeepers that Chafer beetles are present and that egg laying will follow. These eggs will then develop into Chafer grubs, which will feed on grass roots. This causes damage and attracts wildlife to the grass. Birds and badgers will then rip up lawn areas looking for the Chafer grubs to eat. Garden Chafer traps do not catch all Chafer beetle species and is specific to the Garden Chafer beetle but this is the most common species.

Garden Chafer traps will help to reduce adult beetle egg laying and give a valuable warning that Chafers are present. Nematode treatments for controlling the Chafer grubs can then be applied in the late summer.

Garden Chafer traps should be positioned in the garden by the month of May. The trap is supplied with an attracant  lure that will last up to six weeks. This will cover the main flying season of the Garden Chafer beetle.

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
