Solutions for a better world
Parasitic nematodes belong to the Sternernematidae (Steinernema spp.) and Heterorhabditidae (Heterorhabditis bacteriophora) families. These beneficial worms are used to control a number of pests that attack lawns, market garden crops, small fruits, indoor and outdoor plants, home gardens and more. They measure between 0.4 and 1.5 mm and can be seen with a magnifying glass or microscope.
Entomopathogenic nematodes parasitize a number of pests, including white grubs, rose chafers, Japanese beetles, daddy longlegs, flea beetles, weevil larvae, Lepidopteran caterpillars on the ground and fly larvae. They are not harmful to plants or animals.
This natural method eliminates the damage corn borer larvae cause to your corn plants. You will be reducing your need for environmentally-harmful insecticides while protecting your crops.
Our nematodes are produced in Canada from native strains, which are better adapted to our weather conditions and pests. In nature, nematodes are found in several types of habitats, such as cultivated fields, forests, prairies, deserts and even ocean beaches.
