Control mole crickets, leatherjacket larvae and cutworms biologically

nemastar® contains nematodes of the species Steinernema carpocapsae. These are specialized, among other things, in the control of mole crickets, cutworms (larvae of butterfly owls) and leatherjacket larvae and are completely harmless to humans and animals. nemastar® is dissolved in water according to the package instructions and poured onto the infested plants. The nematodes then actively go in search of the pests and control them biologically and sustainably.

How do nematodes work?

Nematodes are threadworms about 0.5 mm long, of which there are over 20,000 different species worldwide. The species Steinernema carpocapsae specializes in controlling leatherjacket larvae, cutworms and mole crickets and is particularly effective. The nematodes penetrate the pests, where they secrete a bacterium with which they live in symbiosis. The bacterium kills the pest and the nematodes multiply inside it until it is consumed. The nematodes then move on to infest the next pest. This process repeats until all pests are controlled. This results in a lasting pest control.
