Steinernema carpocapsae (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) as a biological control agent against the fungus gnat Bradysia agrestis (Diptera: Sciaridae) in propogation houses. pH will have no affect and Electrical Conductivity (EC) is not an issue with the infective juveniles.

Beneficial Nematodes are applied like any conventional spray application via a back-pack sprayer, boom spray, watering can or venturi hose end sprayer. This tackles the problem at its source by interrupting the life cycle of the gnats, killing the larvae before they can develop into adult flies that can reproduce. Adults are able to find their way from outside into growing areas through gaps in protection, and can continually re-infest in this way.Apply as evenly as possible with enough water during or after application to maintain a moist environment in the top layers of the growing medium. When used indoors it can be used throughout the year as preventative measure or when the infestation occurs. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLANT PARASITIC NEMATODES AND BENEFICIAL NEMATODES (ENTOMOPATHOGENIC NEMATODES , OR EN’s)?

Larval feeding can cause direct root damage, as well as provide an entry into the roots for fungal pathogens like Thielaviopsis, Pythium, Botrytis, Verticillium and Fusarium.No, for example fungus gnat nematodes can be applied to a single plant pot with a minimal fungus gnat infestation to stamp it out early. This extended, slow-release control is a safe alternative to chemicals, harmless to wildlife, pets, and humans, will not washaway. Let's face it, us plant parents will do anything to protect our green babies, especially if there is a pest that can harm it.

Q - I have been keeping the compost quite dry to try and get rid of the gnats, will this be ok for the nematodes? Scanmask is available in many quantities, so it is easy to purchase the amount you need depending on how many indoor plants you need to treat. House Plant Boost can be applied either as a drench to the compost the plants are growing in, or as a foliar application to the leaves or foliage. Beneficial predatory Stratiolaelaps scimitus ( Hypoaspis miles) mites are considered as excellent biological agents to target and kill the soil-dwelling pupae of the western flower thrips that present in the soil. For the mini yellow sticky traps, simply place them in the soil around your plants using the wooden stand holder provided.They multiply within the host and release a symbiotic bacterium which produces a toxin that kills the fungus gnat larvae. Steinernema feltiae nematodes are natural predators of ants and ants will move their nest once predators move in. Utilise these predators in combination with your Fungus Fly Killer Nematodes for the complete protection against Fungus Fly infestation.

This is due to the vast majority of live products, hardware and seed items being sent out from separate warehouses and the costs involved. For the control of fungus gnat larvae, we offer various products that work on the basis of SF nematodes. A full list includes: Arisaema, Aster, Astilbe, Azalea, Begonia, Bergenia, Camellia, Cyclamen, Echinacea, Epimedium, Euonymus, Fuchsia, Heuchera, Hosta, Hydrangea, Busy Lizzie, Kalmia, Lily, Peony, Phlox, Primula, Polyanthus, Raspberry, Rhododendron, Saxifrages, Sedum, Strawberry, Syringa, Yew and Wisteria. Although BCAs didn’t catch on right away, leaps and bounds have been made in their acceptances into pest management programs in the past two decades and are now commonly used tools in the pest management toolbox.Lightly irrigate with clear water within 30 minutes of applying to avoid nematodes drying out on the surface of the media or the foliage. Fungus gnat larvae prefer to eat fungus, which is needed in their diet for optimal development; however, if fungus is not readily available, larvae will feed on plant material. Biological control agents (BCAs) are one of the oldest and most effective means for achieving insect control.
