Live plants have a long-recognized health benefits that are both physical and mental. Plant systems clean the air by decreasing carbon dioxide from between 10-25%. Additionally, plants remove toxins such as benzene and formaldehyde from the air. This means that humans can breathe easier in offices and homes with plants. Live plants also add humidity. Furthermore, even a modest, medium-sized plant can make a dramatic difference in the quality of the air that a room’s occupants breathe. The health benefits of plants also include a demonstrable reduction (of up to 30%) of neuropsychological symbols—such as headaches and fatigue).

Black Fly Problem?
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.
