B-Green - fast acting sustainable control for chafer & vine weevil grubs

Parasitic nematodes make short work of soil-dwelling grubs

  • Effective chafer grub controls – targets soil-dwelling beetle larvae, such as Phyllopertha horticola and Hoplia philanthus
  • Also controls black vine weevil larvae (Otiorhynchus sulcatus) - for use in ornamentals, soft fruit and in nurseries
  • Fast-actingHeterorhabidtis bacteriophora nematodes kill target grubs witin 1-2 days of infecting them
  • Sustainable biological control – beneficial nematodes are safe to other beneficials, people and environment
  • Effective between 12°C - 30°C.

Why B-Green is so effective

  • Parasitic nematodes contain insect-killing symbiotic bacterium
  • Infectious juvenile nematodes penetrate host through natural openings
  • Once in body cavity, releases symbiotic bacteria to quickly killed host
  • Nematodes multiply in the cadaver
  • New infectious nematodes released to search for more soil-dwelling pest grubs.
