Control ant nests in grassed areas such as lawns, cricket squares and plant borders using Nematodes.
Ant nematodes are native, naturally occurring microscopic worms which cause the ants to relocate their nest to an alternative location away from the area treated.
Please note: there is a two week turnaround for delivery on this product. This is a living product and has a very short shelf life. Please order within the necessary time frame for application, most arrive with a 2-3 week expiry date.
The ants do not tolerate the nematodes near their nests and move their nests away from these areas. Ants are not killed by Nemasys No Ants, but leave the area that has been treated.
How far away the ants will move their nests is very difficult to determine as it is dependent upon many factors such as soil structure, moisture content and weather conditions. However, it is usually far enough to solve the problem in the area targeted.
Nemasys No Ants ant nematodes are safe to use on turf or soil without any of the precautions associated with chemical use. People and animals can be allowed on the area immediately after treatment.
As the ant nematodes are a cure rather than a preventative measure, DO NOT apply the nematodes until ants are present and the soil is 10°C. You can apply the ant nematodes as long as the soil temperature is 10°C - normally between mid April and September.
Where ants occur repeatedly re-apply the ant nematodes at 4 week intervals.
This product is a biological control which is fully compatible with an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programme.
