What's New
2019 European Chafer City Subsidy Program

The City is offering a 50% discount on the purchase of nematode packages. New Westminster residents are entitled, on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE basis, to pre-purchase a maximum of two nematode packages. There are 250 nematodes packages available for this subsidy program.

You may pre-purchase more nematode packages as desired at full price.


Starting March 9, 2019, you can pre-purchase your subsidized or full price nematode packages through GardenWorks at Mandeville and GardenWorks at Lougheed, Burnaby.

Payment is required at the time of purchase and NO refunds are offered.

For subsidized sales, proof (two pieces of ID) of New Westminster residency (i.e., utility bill, credit card statement, etc. issued within the past three months) and government-issued photo identification are required.

Nematodes require proper storage and need to be applied soon upon receipt. Follow the instructions on your nematode package. This requires a pre-purchase system to ensure the viability of the nematodes. You will be contacted by the seller once the nematodes are available for pickup.
