Preventive control of sciarid larvae with beneficial nematodes.
nemaplus®depot is a premium pest control solution for:
Biological innovation in plant protection. Flies of the Sciaridae family inflict the most damage on crops and are very common in greenhouses. In a dedicated cooperation, the German companies e-nema and Katz Biotech have developed nemaplus®depot. Encapsulated nematodes with a long-term and thus preventive effect protect your plants against sciarid larvae infestation even before any damage occurs.

Learn more about the general mode of action of insect pathogenic nematodes.
Nematodes actively search the soil for larvae, pupae
or adult insects (pests). They penetrate the pests
through respiratory openings and release bacteria
inside them. The bacteria multiply and lead to the
death of the pest.
The nematodes, in turn, feed on the bacteria. Thus, several thousand nematodes can grow in a single insect, and after leaving the host, they seek new pests. If they do not find new hosts, the nematodes usually die in the soil after a few weeks. Insect-pathogenic nematodes are harmless to humans, animals (warm-blooded) and plants.

In contrast to powdered products, where the
nematodes are applied with the irrigation water and
immediately enter the soil (substrate), the
nematodes leave the capsules with a time delay. If
the capsules are introduced into the substrate, the
shell becomes permeable after about a week and the
nematodes gradually migrate out.
Thus, over a period of several weeks, new nematodes enter the substrate and can control fungus gnats with their first appearance. Thus, the product nemaplus®depot has an almost doubled duration of action and can be used preventively against the larvae of the fungus gnat. The capsules are made exclusively from food-grade substances and are biodegradable.
The special feature of
is its novel and globally unique formulation:
nematodes, are embedded in a water emulsion and
enclosed in an alginate-coating. These pearls
are introduced directly into the substrate, where
they open after a certain time or are opened
by the larvae themselves or other microorganisms
in the substrate.
The nematodes control the larvae and the plant is protected before any damage can occur. The nematodes an the pearls are 100% organic and dissolve without residue. The perfect solution for your integrated pest management.
