Nematodes are natural enemies of woodlice. The nematode species Steinernema carpocapsae specialises in woodlice, among other things, and can use them for its own feeding and reproduction. The nematodes are contained in a bait that is placed in a trap. The woodlice are lured into the trap by the bait, where they become infected with the nematodes and die after a few days. The trap can be used indoors all year round.
How do nematodes work?
Nematodes are approx. 0.5 mm long threadworms, of which there are over 20,000 different species worldwide. The species Steinernema carpocapsae is specialised in controlling woodlice and is particularly effective. The nematodes penetrate the woodlouse and secrete a bacterium with which they live in symbiosis. The bacterium kills the pest and the nematodes multiply in it until it is consumed. The nematodes then move on to infest the next pest. This process repeats itself until all the pests have been controlled.
We have been producing various nematode species on an industrial scale for over 25 years. We rely on the highest production standards and qualified employees from over 16 countries. What started in 1997 as a spin-off from the University of Kiel has now developed into a globally recognized medium-sized company with over 70 employees. E-nema stands for innovation and expertise in the field of nematode research and production. Our products are used in countries all over the world in a wide range of applications.
