Carrot root flies lay eggs in the soil near carrots. These then develop into tiny larvae, which burrow into carrots, often making the carrots un-edible. Carrot fly overwinters in the soil as a pupae and then hatch out in the  spring. They then seek out new Carrot crops laying more eggs next to them. There can be several carrot root fly generations each year.

To help detect Carrot root fly and help to reduce their numbers, place a Carrot root fly trap in the soil bed where you are growing carrots. The trap consists of a sturdy metal pole , orange sticky traps and fastening clips. The trap is angled at 45 degrees facing downwards, with this side of the orange sticky trap covered in glue. This helps catch more of the carrot root flies emerging from the soil and reduces the risk of catching other insects.

The kit is supplied with a pack of 5 Orange sticky traps, so that once the traps are full of Carrot root flies or dust and dirt, they can be replaced.

Regular use of the Carrot root fly trap during the spring and summer will help reduce carrot root fly adult numbers and act as an early warning of their presence. Further controls, such as the application of carrot root fly nematodes can then be applied at the right time.

The Carrot root fly trap can be re-used for many years and helps towards the natural and chemical free control of this damaging pests of Carrots.

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
