Agrobacterias - Snake Killer - Larvae Treatment - 10g
Tackles Pest Infestations Before They Become a Problem by Destroying Larvae
Snake Killer utilises a very special type of bacteria to destroy larvae, worms and lepidoptera (moths). Killing pests off during the early stages is the best way to deal with the problem. By the time you spot an infestation with the naked eye, a lot of the damage is already done - use Snake Killer and you can ensure that it never gets to that stage and that your grow room stays healthy.

How Snake Killer Works:
Snake Killer contains a strain of bacteria known as Bacillus thuringiensis. It works by synthesising protein crystals called delta endotoxins, which are safe for humans but fatal to any larvae, worms or moths that decide to eat them. It results in intestinal paralysis. The pests' epithelium breaks and intestinal fluids flow out; the vital organs then break down and it inevitably dies.
How to use Snake Killer:
Because Snake Killer tackles larvae you should use it as a preventative - don't wait until you have a problem before starting the treatment. Prevention is always much better than cure.
Fill your sprayer with a mixture of 0.5g-1g Snake Killer for every litre of water, then give it a good shake. Ideally, you should let the water stand in a bucket with the lid off for 24 hours to allow the chlorine content to evaporate. This is particularly important when using biological products. Never mix Snake Killer with other products; use it as a standalone. Wait for at least 3 days before applying any other foliar sprays to allow the bacteria to take hold.
Always spray during dark hours with the lights off. Treating during light periods can result in leaf burning. Droplets act like a lens and magnify the intensity of light in certain spots – a very bad idea.
