SuperNemos is a biological pest control solution for your fruit and vegetables and ornamental plants. It has been specially formulated using nematodes, which are organisms naturally living in the soil to actively seek out and target a variety of pests in your garden.
Vine weevils, Scarid flies, Strawberry root weevil, Chafer grubs, Leatherjackets, Wire worms, Cutworms, Cabbage worm, Fungus gnat larvae, Beetle larvae, Ants, Processionary Caterpillars.
SuperNemos are completely safe to use around vegetables, plants, pets and people. Using SuperNemos will also help to develop a richer, healthier soil containing beneficial organisms.
You can apply SuperNemos in a variety of ways; sprayers, watering cans, hose‐end sprayers, and even via injection into irrigation systems.
Results should be seen between 3‐7 days for caterpillars, cutworms, army works and sod webworms. For grubs and weevils feeding stops within 3 days and maximum control is achieved within 2‐4 weeks.
How does SuperNemos work?
TIP: Your nematodes are busy working their magic, unseen under the soil. If you want to see proof you can sprinkle some live mealworms (available at any good fishing outlets) on the soil in a contained area and see how they are affected by nematode action.
SuperNemos nematodes are applied to the soil, and live in the soil where they locate their hosts. The nematode infective stage enters the insect and begins to feed on its blood and internal organs. Soon after it begins to feed, it releases unique bacteria which it carries internally. Those bacteria infect the insect, reproduce quickly, and kill the insect within 30 to 48 hours.
The nematodes thrive upon this food, which becomes available as the decaying insect is broken down by the unique bacteria.
The nematode forms an adult stage and begins to produce thousands of eggs. These eggs mature and about 2‐3 generations of nematodes are produced in the decaying insect.
Reproduction continues until the nematodes sense that the decaying insect will not support further reproduction by the nematode.
At that time, all of the nematode offspring mature only to the infective juvenile stage and begin to emerge from the host insect to look for more viable live insects to infect. The infective juvenile, IJ3, is the third nymphal stage of the nematode. It has a double thick skin, which is best equipped to survive in nature until it can find a new host.
