Worms

Unfortunatly lumbricides are now pretty inafective as they`ll only last about a month or so.

But Use a carbendazim based product.

Culturaly Manage OM (Which you shouldn`t have much thatch on your square anyway)

And Avoid Lime based products that`ll increase PH as they (Worms) like Alkaline conditions.

But you know what..I`ve got a PH of 5.5 and minimal OM and i`ve still got problems with them

Suppose that throws the rule book out doesn`t it !

Everyone has the same problem.

Thanks

Still raining

For the past couple of years I,ve sprayed the whole ground with a carbenazim based product once before the start of the season April and at the end of the season September, it seems to have a cumlative effect and my worm problem has gone, hopefully

Worms are hermaphrodite - they look at the boys too, ticky.
