Scotts Nemasys G

Keeping chafer grubs at bay, Scotts’ Nemasys G is a biological control product that can be used as part of an integrated pest-control programme on amenity turf such as golf courses, sports pitches and landscaped areas.

Nemasys G, developed by Becker Underwood, contains the beneficial insect parasitic nematode Heterorhabditis megidis — a microscopic worm that seeks out and enters chafer grubs in the soil, killing the pest and reproducing inside it. The product stops the grubs feeding within three days of application. Grubs die within 10 to 14 days and secondary damage, caused by birds and badgers digging up the grubs, also stops.
