Control pests in the vegetable patch with nema-care®.

Whether cabbage plants, potatoes, tomatoes, onion plants, asparagus, beans or carrots - in vegetable cultivation there are many pests that can cause considerable damage to the plants. Feeding on roots, stems, cotyledons and other plant parts leads to poor growth, loss of quality and, in the worst case, even premature death of the plant.


nema-care® contains 2 x 10 million nematodes of the genus Steinernema to control pests in vegetable beds. The package size of nema-care® is specially adapted for use in vegetable beds in the home garden.

Mode of action of nema-care®

The nematodes penetrate the larvae of the pests and secrete a bacterium that kills the larvae. In the larvae, the nematodes multiply and infest further larvae. This process repeats until the nematodes find no more hosts or all larvae are killed. The nematodes specialize in the larvae of pests and are completely harmless to humans and pets.

nema-care® is used from April to September, depending on the pest to be controlled. The soil temperature should be above 12 °C. The treated areas should not dry out during the next few weeks.

Gemüseschädlinge biologisch bekämpfen

nema-care® schützt Ihre Gemüsepflanzen vor Schädlingen, die häufig im Gemüsebeet vorkommen, wie z. B. kleine Kohlfliegen, Lauchmotten, Möhrenfliegen, Zwiebelfliegen, Erdflöhe, Erdraupen, Spargelfliegen und Bohnenfliegen. Ganz ohne den Einsatz von Chemikalien können die Larven dieser Schädlinge wirksam bekämpft werden.

Wie wirken Nematoden?

Nematoden sind ca. 0,5mm lange Fadenwürmer, von denen es weltweit über 20.000 verschiedene Arten gibt. Nematoden der Gattung Steinernema  sind unter anderem auf die Bekämpfung von Gemüseschädlingen spezialisiert und besonders effektiv. Die Nematoden dringen in die Schädlinge ein und sondern dort ein Bakterium ab, mit dem sie in Symbiose leben. Das Bakterium tötet den Schädling ab und die Nematoden vermehren sich in diesem bis er aufgezehrt ist. Die Nematoden ziehen dann weiter, um den nächsten Schädling zu befallen. Dieser Prozess wiederholt sich solange bis alle Schädlinge bekämpft sind.
