Millipede Control - Nematodes Only


Portuguese Millipedes are pests throughout many areas of southern Australia, but a native nematode can help battle this nuisance pest.  

This product includes a gel pack of the nematodes only. You can use these with bait stations you have previously purchased, or ones you make yourself. We will provide information on how to make the bait stations as well as other options for infecting the millipedes.

For Western Australia customers we now have a local agent for sales and support of the millipede control products:

Millipede Control is simple and effective with nematodes!

In the mid-1980’s researchers in South Australia found that a native nematode also attacks the introduced Portuguese Millipede (nematodes are tiny parasitic ‘worms’). This nematode only attacks millipedes, and will not affect crops, plants, animals or other insects. As this is a biological control millipedes will not be eradicated, but when combined with other control strategies, numbers are significantly reduced. 

Bug Central has developed a new system for releasing the nematodes using a bait station. This product contains the nematodes  only, and is suitable for a large garden or small rural property. Releasing the nematodes is as easy as mixing the nematode mix with some dog food (yes, dog food!) which is used as an attractant for the millipedes. If you have your own bait stations, or plan to make your own, then this product is for you. Each gel pack of nematodes is enough for at least two cycles of release. 

Detailed instructions are emailed at the time of each order. 

Orders are sent via Star Track Express or Express Post, so a daytime physical address is preferred.
