Chafer Grubs can devastate a lawn PLUS birds and animals digging up and pulling at the lawn (to get at the grubs) can do even more damage. Control chafer grubs naturally by treating with NemasysŪ Chafer Grub Killer when they are discovered (and the soil temp is 12c) or apply when they are at their most destructive i.e. in the spring (April) and Autumn (Sept). NemasysŪ Chafer Grub Killer is a perishable product and should be ordered when you are ready to apply or select an alternative date when ordering. Finished for this year - available again in April 2018.
NemasysŪ Chafer Grub Killer contains Heterorhabditis bacteriophora nematodes which kill Chafer Grubs, but are harmless to children, wildlife and pets and the lawn may be used immediately after application. Simply mix the nematodes with water and apply as follows :-
1. Apply NemasysŪ Chafer Grub Killer in September/October - This is the ideal time to treat as the soil is warm PLUS the chafer grubs are newly hatched and are the most susceptible to the nematodes. Finished for this year - available again in April 2018.
2. Apply NemasysŪ Chafer Grub Killer when chafer grubs are discovered - NemasysŪ Chafer Grub Killer is normally applied in September as this is the ideal time to treat, but if you discover chafer grubs at any other time of year i.e. in the spring/summer then you can treat during the year (and the soil temp is 12c), but you must treat in September as well. Finished for this year - available again in April 2018.
How to apply? - Nematodes are easy to use. Simply mix the harmless powder with water & apply to the soil around the plant using a watering can fitted with a rose (we recommend the Haws Rose no.14) or a hose-end feeder (the Miracle Gro Hose-end Feeder is recommended by the nematode manufacturer).
