New! Palma-Life

The most efficient biological way of controlling red palm weevil and palm borer.


Offers the ideal biological solution for the control of the red palm weevil (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus) and palm
borer (Paysandisia archon).
Palma-Life contains the insect-parasitic nematodes Steinernema carpocapsae.


When the nematodes are placed on the crown of the palm trees, they start searching for the larvae of their prey.
The nematodes penetrate the larvae through the natural body orifices. As soon as the nematodes penetrated the
larvae, the bacteria living in symbiosis with the nematodes are released. These bacteria produce a toxin that kills
the host. These bacteria transform the host tissue into digestible components for the nematodes.
The nematodes multiply in the cadaver and, when it disintegrates, a new generation of useful nematodes spreads
and starts searching for new victims. An infected red palm weevil larva changes its color from white beige to ochre

Palma-Life is supplied as a gel formula and is available in the following packaging units:
• 5 million nematodes (art. nr. 001099)
• 50 million nematodes (art. nr. 001098)
• 250 million nematodes (art. nr. 001097)
