1.Water the soil: vine weevil nematodes are best applied to pots and soil in flower beds when the soil is wet. 

2. Place sachet into the watering can or sprayer: Open bag and place sachets into a NemaSprayer or watering can.

Add water to the top of the Neudorff NemaSprayer and replace lid. Shake vigorously to evenly disperse nematodes. Attach garden hose to the  NemaSprayer and turn the valve to fully open to evenly disperse nematodes.

Add water to the watering can and mix vigorously to evenly disperse nematodes.

3. Apply nematodes mixture to the lawn: Start spraying/watering the most affected area of lawn and complete spraying/watering  outwards to provide total nematode coverage.

4. Keep area moist for the next 3 days( or a week in dry weather): This ensures nematodes are flushed down into the root zone where feeding grubs are present. After spraying/watering is finished dispose of the used sachets(it is normal for some leftover inert carriers from inside the sachets to remain in the NemaSprayer/watering can).
