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. The kit includes 6 bait stations and solar lights, 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, and then placing the bait stations around the garden. 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.

Millipede Control

Each ‘Millipede Control Kit’ includes both the gel pack with nematodes and the bait stations. There are six bait stations and solar lights in each kit, and a gel pack of nematodes that allows at least two cycles of release.

A booklet outlining use of the bait stations and nematodes, as well as millipede control strategies will be emailed separately.

* It is possible for customers to make their own bait stations, with the bait stations and lights available at most hardware stores. For this reason, we also sell the nematodes separately.
