The live packets of Entonem contain 50 Million Steinernema Feltiae nematodes that are extremely effective against larvae of various immature insects such as sciarid flies (fungus gnats), thrips and black vine weevil. Issues with flies typically occur when grow media is too moist or there is not enough air flow over the top of pots - leaving them unchecked will harm cuttings, seedlings, young plants and damage leaves on mature plants.
Entonem Steinernema Feltiae actively search for prey then enter larvae via openings in the mouth and respiratory system. Once inside they will begin to feed and release bacteria that will multiply and spread inside the insect larvae quickly, typically killing the host in only a few days. The bacteria will break down host larva into material Entonem Steinernema Feltiae feed on. In the days following application you will notice less insect activity if problems persist repeat the treatment weekly as long as necessary.

Infected insect larvae colour will turn yellow to light brown and become slightly slimy. This makes nematodes difficult to observe in the soil, coco or growing media.
