Beneficial Nematodes can be used to replace traditional chemical insecticides to control insect pests. They can be applied in your yards, gardens, golf course turf grasses, green houses, vineyards, around honey bee hives and many other arenas affected by insect pests.
Natural Parasites of Insect Pests
Since nematodes are natural parasites of specific insect pests, they do not attack or infect other organisms like good bugs such as honey bees or lady bugs. In addition they cannot harm the people who produce them, or the people who use them to battle their pest problems. They cannot harm kids and pets who simply want to play on in the lawn where nematodes have been applied.
The best part is that your plants are not damaged and can thrive through the whole growing season.
To understand how nematodes work, please study the diagram below or visit one of our nematode pages to see how that specific nematode works.
