The nematode-based NEMASYS Biological Fruit and Vegetable Protection provides season-long security against a wide range of common pests that attack most vegetables, salad crops, fruit trees and bushes.
The one product protects against carrot and cabbage root fly, cutworms, onion fly, sciarid fly, caterpillars, gooseberry sawfly, thrips, shore fly and codling moth. It contains a mix of nematode species, that are naturally occurring microscopic worms that are natural pest controllers. It causes no harm to non-target species.
