Our Technology

Nematode technology

NemaTrident®, a Tri-Component biopesticides solution product, incorporates a range of highly virulent species of insect-parasitic nematodes within the heterorhabditis and steinernema genera.

These nematodes attack and destroy the larvae of the insect pest – preventing future pests from developing. They are safe, non-toxic to users and consumers, decompose rapidly and can be targeted at specific pests to avoid harming beneficial insects. 

tri-component solutions

To optimise the effectiveness of these nematodes we have incorporated them into the Bionema Tri-Component solution which consists of:

  • The NemaTrident® specially developed, highly virulent strain of beneficial nematodes 
  • The Nemaspreader®a biocompatible wetting agent that helps Bionema’s beneficial nematodes to spread and thrive 
  • Specialist customer-focused, trainingand advice on how to optimise the effectiveness of the nematodes.

 

Benefits of Our Technology

We have developed an eco-friendly, non-toxic biocontrol solution, which can be used to increase productivity within the agricultural, horticultural, amenity/sports turf and forestry sectors. The technology associated with this product is both unique and cost-effective; moreover, it is simple and user-friendly.  

  • nematodes within the heterorhabditis and steinernema generaOur technology does not use any chemicals that are harmful to the environment, and it has no harmful effects on beneficial insect species 
  • Our nematodes are obligate parasitic, which means they will not harm other beneficial insects – unlike some other methods of control
  • Non-toxic to workers, users, and consumers, making them safe for use in any environment 
  • Can be applied in isolation or as part of an Integrated Pest Management programme 
  • Residue-free  
  • No insect resistance issue 
  • Safer environmental footprint.
