nemaplus® for Fungus Gnat & Thrips Control

Great for nutrient cycling and killing gnats and thrips

nemaplus® contains beneficial nematodes for controlling fungus gnats and thrips pupae in the soil or media. Can also be sprayed on to leaves, flowers and fruit to control thrips.

nemaplus® contains "infective juveniles", the hunting stage of the nematodes life.

The infective juveniles of nemaplus® actively seek out suitable prey. Once found, they crawl inside the body of their prey through breathing spiracles or other orifices, release a beneficial bacteria to break the pests internal organs down and feeds on the bacterial slurry. The nematodes then breed in the cadaver, which eventually breaks apart releasing more nematodes into the growing media.

Application:

The nematodes are most infective when the growing media temperature are between 10 to 25°C. The efficiency of the nematodes may decrease at higher or lower temperatures.

The growing media should be moist but not wet. Nematodes cannot swim and are unable to move in water-saturated media.

Soil Application (Fungus Gnats and Thrips Pupae)

  • 50 million nematodes treats 100 m2 of soil/media
  • Or 10,000 nematodes per litre of potting mix
  • Or 15,000 nematodes per litre of substrates containing a high composted green waste or perlite content

A single application of nemaplus protects crops for approximately 6 weeks. For heavy sciarid fly infestations, repeat treatment after 10-14 days.

The media should be moist but not sodden. Nematodes cannot swim and cannot move effectively in water-saturated potting mix.

Foliar Application (Thrips)

  • 250,000 nematodes per m²
  • ​Spray to run-off
  • 1000 litres per hectare

Please seek the assistance of a crop scout or phone or email us directly for guidance. The advice above is indicative only, and more specific advice may be beneficial.

The nematodes are infective when the media temperature ranges from 10 to 25°C. At higher and lower temperatures, nematode efficacy decreases.

      nemaplus® should be used as soon as possible upon delivery.

      • The package may be stored for several weeks at 4 to 10°C (see best before date on package).
      • DO NOT FREEZE or exposed to more than 30°C.
      • Nematodes can be applied with watering cans or through more commercial methods
      • Normal spraying equipment can be used as well as drip-irrigation or a dosatron
      • If possible skip irrigation once before the treatment to avoid compost to becoming too wet.

      Important Shipping Information & Delays:

      This product is drop-shipped by the manufacturer to ensure you receive the highest quality biological agents in the best possible condition and is therefore not available for local pick up.

      Also, due to huge demand for biological control throughout the peak seasons, there is currently a back log of orders and there will most likely be a delay in the Bioforce team shipping your order around these peak times, so PLEASE NOTE: Bioforce orders could be delayed for 2 weeks or more.
