Nematop Käferstopp is used to combat adult wine weevils (from Mai till September). The trap is made of wood with notches milled into it. In theese, there is a gel which contains a total of 2,5 million Steinernema carpocapsae nematodes. The weevils hide under the trap and there get infected with the beneficial nematodes. By the use of the trap you can gradually reduce the number of weevils.

With the Steinernema carpocapsae re-fill gel, three traps can be re-filled.
