Beneficial Nematodes: Yes, good nematodes really do exist! These minuscule beneficials are barely visible to the naked eye as time threads. They attack only insects in moist soils or borer tunnels. Plants, earthworms, and vertebrates are completely unaffected by these tiny beasts. The major requirements for successful use are an environment that does not dry out, and appropriate application rates.
Beneficial nematodes can be supplied in a spray concentrate or a moist granular carrier. Please consult us with your particular needs.
