These nematodes get rid of common red and black ants in gardens and lawns. Has a dual action: will kill ant larvae in nests, and will discourage adult ants from building nests in the treated areas. Apply when soil temperature is above 50° F and when ant activity is visible above ground, typically March through October. Covers approximately 16 nests, or up to 1,000 square feet. Comes in a unique 3” globe-shaped container of biodegradable plant materials containing 10 million nematodes and an instruction sheet. These nematodes can be stored under refrigeration for 4-5 months.
Can be applied with a watering can or some brands of hose end sprayers. It is best and easiest to apply with the special Nemaglobe Nematode sprayer, which contains no filter to block the nematodes, is pre-calibrated, and is specially adapted for use with Nemaglobe nematodes. There is no guarantee that other brands of hose end sprayers will evenly disperse the nematodes.
These are shipped in an insulated box with 2 cold packs to enhance viability.
These creatures will die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather. We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem. Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If FedEx is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.
