If you are an avid gardener, you understand how soil-bound pests can be detrimental to your plants. Unfortunately, to eradicate these agricultural menaces, people often utilize chemical-based treatments such as pesticides. Although effective, pesticides can be harmful not only to your plants, but to humans and pets as well, not to mention the long-term effects they have on the ecosystem.
In order to effectively prevent and remove pests from their gardens without resorting to the use of chemicals, many people are turning to organic solutions, one of which are nematodes. Beneficial nematodes are one of nature’s most effective pest controllers, and because they
are so easy to use, even the most inexperienced of gardeners can reap their garden-
are microscopic roundworms that naturally occur in soil, but they can also be purchased and introduced into an environment. These genetically and ecologically-diverse organisms occupy more varied habitats than any other animal group in the world and serve a variety of functions in nature - controlling agricultural pests is one of their most valuable qualities.
