How it Works

Harmless to the ornamental crops, humans, the environment and other beneficial insects, these nematodes actively seek out Leatherjackets and Cutworms by swimming in the thin film of water on soil particles. They locate hosts by detecting carbon dioxide and other waste products. After locating pest larvae, nematodes invade through natural body openings and inject bacteria into the insect. Bacteria develop within the insect and it dies of septicemia.
