Ivisons Castaway™ - Application Guide

The worm-friendly solution to unsightly worm casts!



When To Use Castaway: 

You’ll notice more and more worm casts appear as the temperatures start to cool and the rains arrive. In the UK, this usually means September into October and right through into spring if we experience a mild winter, the first application of the season is therefore usually in September. As the soil becomes wetter, worms move to the surface to breathe, eat and reproduce – usually at night. 

How To Apply 

  • Mowing of the lawn prior to application is a must. Lawn length must not be more than 1 inch as the product needs to gain maximum contact with the soil. Failing in the above preparation will delay the results and in some cases not work.
  • Apply Castaway at the recommended application rate, applied through standard spray equipment. 
  • Allow 2-3 days from application to begin to see the benefits of reduction in surface casts. Reduce time between applications if it is very wet. 
  • If casting is really bad the first application needs repeated 2 or 3 times weekly.
  • Best to avoid application immediately before the rain and re-apply after rain. 
  • Remove or clean the footwear you were wearing during application to avoid damaging surrounding areas such as patios.
