Our Nematode For Chafer Grubs contains a naturally occurring nematode for the control of many types of chafer including the Garden chafer and May beetle. The pack contains two sachets, one containing the nematodes and the second a spreader to give better performance. This product is safe to use and gives kill rates between 90% - 100% which makes it a most effective and flexible product.

The unique two pack formula of our Nematode For Chafer Grubs ensures the maximum spread of nematodes when applied with the spreader which greatly improves the water holding capacity of the soil allowing the nematodes work better and for longer.

It must be remembered that nematodes are living within healthy soil. When you add our Nematode For Chafer Grubs to your grassed area you are increasing in the number of nematodes meaning that more chafer grubs can be dealt with.
