SuperNemos – an Irish invention – is a biological control product containing microscopic beneficial nematodes (found in healthy soil). The invention is a special formulation – patent pending – of nematodes which aggressively pursue several or different groups of insect pest; thus ‘Super’ and ‘Nemos’ (nematodes).
This invention was researched and developed in Ireland with assistance from Irish nurseries and soft fruit growers. The product was grant-aided by Enterprise Ireland.
When applied in specific soil, SuperNemos will attack its target insect species; the nematodes enter the host through body openings or by penetration of the body wall.
Once inside they kill the host within 48 hours.
Unlike any other Bio-Control (beneficial nematodes) products sold in the market (which contain only a single beneficial nematode species targeting only one group of pests), SuperNemos effectively targets a range of garden pests: wireworms, vine weevils, strawberry root weevils, carrot weevils, chafer grubs, caterpillars, cutworms, leather jackets, cucumber, tomato & potato beetle larvae, cabbage worm, fungus gnats larvae and many more!
SuperNemos is an environmentally friendly product that is harmless to wildlife, earthworms, bees, bumblebees, pets and children – it attacks only target insect pests.
