We are very keen to incorporate biological controls and in the most environmentally friendly way possible when it comes to tackling the pests.
During the early Autumn we use nematodes to kill vine weevil larva. We apply them through our irrigation system using a Dosatron. We use the brands Nemasys H and Nemasys L. We use these two products so we are able to use the nematodes in high and low temperatures. We also use nematodes to help with slug control.
The slug pellets we use are from Sluxx HP. We wanted to choose the safest and least harmful pellets to the wildlife. The active ingredient in Sluxx HP is ferric phosphate, this naturally occurs in the environment, meaning that the pellets are wildlife friendly.
