Vine weevil is one of the most destructive garden pests attacking a wide range of plants. Damage to plants is caused by both the adult Vine weevil beetle and the larval stage. However the damage caused by the vine weevil larvae is the most destructive and dangerous to plants. Vine weevil larvae live near the roots of plants feeding on the roots. For small or young plants the damage can be fatal. Symptoms will include plants looking like they have not been watered. On investigation at the root zone of the plant, small white larvae/grubs with a brown head will be found. Other symptoms of vine weevil attack are half moon shaped cut marks on leaves made by the adult vine weevil. The adults are largely nocturnal and remain hidden in the day. There are no controls available to gardeners for the control of vine weevil adults.

Vine weevil can be contained and killed with the use of Vine weevil killing nematodes. These tiny microscopic worms are watered into the compost or soil in open borders and most effectively in pots. Here they search out, infect and kill the vine weevil larvae. Infected larvae turn brown and die within a few days. The body of the vine weevil larvae is used as a host and releases more nematodes to kill more vine weevil larvae.

  • Vine weevil killer is easy and safe to use
  • Vine weevil killer is not harmful to wildlife, pets or children and leaves no harmful residues
  • Vine weevil killer provides fast control of vine weevil larvae
  • Vine weevil larvae are not able to build up resistance to this form of biological control
  • One pack treats up to 20 square metres or up to 200 x 30cm pots

Vine weevil killer nematodes can be used when soil or compost temperatures are above 12.c.  Ensure soil or compost is moist at time of application and avoid applying in strong sunlight, as the nematodes are UV sensitive.

Instructions for use:

  • Empty all of pack contents into 4 litres of water to pre-mix nematodes, this is important to ensure even distribution of nematodes when applied
  • Pour 1 litre of nematode concentrate into a watering can and add 7 litres of water
  • Apply using a coarse rose to avoid blockage in the rose
  • Mix and stir thoroughly
  • Water into pots/containers or soil
  • One pack of Vine Weevil Killer will make up 4 x 8 litre watering cans
  • Do not store made up solution , use as quickly as possible after mixing
  • Un-opened packs of nematodes can be stored in a fridge for up to 4 weeks

Vine weevil adults are highly mobile and may appear in your garden during the summer, so more than one application maybe required. Good practice is to apply Vine weevil Killer spring between March-May and Vine Weevil Killer summer between June - October.

Watch our video on the Nematode home page for easy instructions on how to apply Vine weevil nematodes.

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
