Nematop Adult Vine Weevil Trap
Nematop Adult Vine Weevil Trap - Vine weevil adults are active throughout the summer. They are nocturnal, so they feed at night taking notches out of the edges of the leaf and then hide during the day, so you may never actually see them and then during the night they lay eggs around the garden - up to 1500 eggs each! Control adult vine weevils by placing Nematop Adult Vine Weevil Traps under your plants in the summer once the adults become active to reduce the number of adults, which will help to reduce the population of vine weevil in your garden and stop the damage to your plants.
N.B. These traps contain perishable nematodes, so they are available during the summer months i.e. June to August - finished for this year and will be available again in 2018.
Each trap consists of a specially designed wooden board, that has 3 grooves in it, which are filled with a gel containing 2.5 million nematodes (Steinernema carpocapsae), which attracts the adults. The boards are placed face down directly onto the ground beneath your plants and as they absorb water, the gel swells up and "oozes" out under the board creating a "cushion " of gel under the board in contact with the soil. The adult beetles will crawl into the grooves looking for a sheltered spot to hide in during the day. The nematodes in the gel will then infect the adult beetles and safely kill them without harming anything else - these traps are safe for children, pets and wildlife. Each trap will control adult beetles in a 10 sqm area or 4m of hedging and each trap is effective for approx 6 weeks.
Finished for this year - available again in 2018.
