Steinernema carpocapsae
NEMAcontrol carpocapsae is a biological product and contains the insect parasitic nematodes Steinernema carpocapsae. After administration, the nematodes actively search for and penetrate the prey, after which they excrete bacteria, killing the prey. NEMAcontrol carpocapsae is completely safe for humans, the environment, the crop and beneficial insects. The nematodes are active at a soil temperature between 12 and 30°C. The parasitic nematodes of S. carpocapsae have both a soil and a foliar application.
