Insect Control | How to Kill Insect Larvae in Soils
Is your lawn plagued with insects? Do you use insecticides over and over again and they just keep coming back? Are you are killing most of the adults, only for more to hatch and grow? The natural way to eliminate insect larvae is starvation.
Natural insect control: Natural microbes can help you reduce the insect population of your yard by starving the larvae, but will not affect adult insects. The microbes contained in AQ-3 will reduce the nitrate levels in the soil, killing the nematodes that feed off of the nitrates. Nematodes are a major food source for insect larvae, so when the nematodes die off, the insect larvae starve. The insect population is reduced, all but eliminated.
If you have an area that is covered with decomposing grass clippings,plants and leaves, it must be raked as thoroughly as possible before treatment. Since, decomposing matter produces nitrates which feed the nematodes, which feed the insect larvae, you need to remove as much decomposing plant life as possible. Otherwise, you will have to use more microbes and the insect control process will take considerably longer.
Insect Control Technique
In the fall of the year, apply AQ-3 as a soil spray at the application rate of 1 pound per acre. In the spring, apply GPN-2 soil spray to populate the soil with the beneficial microbes needed for a beautiful lawn. GPN-2 is a soil spray that contains a balance of microbes and minerals which is vital a lush, insect and disease free lawn. The application rate for the GPN-2 Soil Spray is also 1 pound per acre. Thus you have natural organic insect control.
