Will Grow Your Own nematodes affect earthworms?

Answered by Julian Posted in Category Pest Control & Nature

Dear Julian

Please could you tell me if Nemasys Grow Your Own will affect earthworms? Also, is it too late to use it this year as I am planting my winter veg now.   

Thanks

Dear Vivianne

Nemasys Grow Your Own nematodes are not harmful to earthworms. It is also still the season to apply the nematodes for controlling a wide variety of soil borne pests. The nematodes will be active while the soil temperatures are above 10.c, which they will be several more months yet. Hope this helps.
