Unit of packaging Heterorhabditis bacteriophora (entomopathogenic nematode) Standard pack size: bag in a box Contains: 50 million larvae (third stage) in inert carrier material Large pack size: 2 bags in a box Contains: 2 x 250 million larvae (third stage) in inert carrier material Target Larvae of various species of beetle, such as the black vine weevil Otiorhynchus sulcatus. Preparation of spray solution Put the contents of the pack into a bucket containing 5 litres of water (15-20°C) Stir well and leave to soak for 20-30 seconds Stir well once again and pour the entire solution into the spray tank Top up until the required amount of solution is in the tank Spray immediately after preparation Use the whole pack in one go, as the distribution of nematodes in the pack is not homogenous! Application and dose With a watering- can, sprinkler system, backpack spray unit or vehicle-mounted spray unit To avoid blockage, all filters should be removed Use a maximum pressure of 12 bar on spraying boom or pistol The spray nozzle opening should be at least 0.5 mm (500 microns) Spray over the soil surface Continuous mixing should take place to prevent nematodes sinking to the bottom of the spray tank Water the crop before and after application Keep the soil moist for the first 2 weeks after application Environmental conditions The moisture content of the soil must be high Soil temperature between 14 and 33°C Storage and handling Shelf life: see package for expiry date Storage temperature: 2-6°C In a dark place Appearance Larvae (third stage): size 0.6 mm long Other stages: develop inside host Mode of action After application, the nematodes actively search for their prey and penetrate them. The nematodes feed on the contents of the prey, excreting specific bacteria from their digestive tracts as they do so. These bacteria convert host tissue into products that the nematodes can easily ingest. The larvae die within a few days. Visible effects Affected larvae turn pink-red or even brown. Important!
