EFFECTIVE ORGANIC INSECTICIDE
RED WORM CASTING EXTRACT CONCENTRATE
There are about 6,500 species of thrips and they are the bane of British gardeners. If you are faced with a severe infestation of thrips, usually the fastest way to kill them is to use a chemical pesticide which may also be harmful to other garden creatures.
Worm castings concentrate contains high levels of a natural chemical called chitinase. It works by destroying chitin.Thrips have a tiny skeleton made of chitin. So when the concentrate hits the infestation, they are killed very quickly.
Although it's strong it will not harm your plants in any way. One blast sends thousands of droplets of concentrate to drench the infestation, and it goes to work very quickly.
By next day the infestation is usually dead.Simply take a child's paintbrush or a cotton bud and wipe them away.
This product could not be more appropriately named. It's totally organic and is made for us by red worms. They pass a nutritiously rich 'tea' which is filtered 5 times to make this product.
Please do not confuse Nature's Gift with raw leachate taken from do-it-yourself garden worm bins, which may contain harmful pathogens. Nature's Gift concentrate worm casting extract has been processed to ensure that it is100% safe to use.
HOW TO USE
Ensure the spray aperture is pointing direct at the infestation. From a distance of 10 cm give a burst of concentrate. If using against Gladiolus thrips which infest the flowers (or other types of flower)spray from 15 - 20 cm to limit the force of the spray on the blooms. It will quickly run down into the core of the bloom where the thrips are hiding.
As long as the infestation is drenched there is no need tore-apply. Do not apply when rain is due as this will reduce the effectiveness of the concentrate. Early morning or late evenings are good times to apply it.
After 24 hours check the infestation. It will likely be dead. Thrips are very small so you may not see them with the naked eye. You may only see the damage they do. But if you do see the dead thrips, gently wipe them away from the plant with a child's paint brush. Give one more brief spray to discourage thrips from revisiting.
