Guardian of Gardens is a mixure of several species of entomopathogenic nematodes of the genus Steinernema and Heterorhabditis which attack several soil dwelling pests.
Entomopathogenic nematodes are distributed in the juvenile stage (infectious larvae). There are 0,4 to 1,5 mm long and can be observed with a 20 X magnifying glass. Once in the soil, they penetrate in the insect pest by its natural openings (mouth, respiratory orifices and anus). The Nematodes feed on the tissues and release symbiotic bacteria that are present in their intestines. These bacteria kill the host after 24 to 48 hours..
A synthetic sponge containing entomopathogenic nematodes. Just squeeze the sponge into the water to make the nematode solution.
Guardians of the Garden nematodes can be applied using conventional application equipment (including tank sprayers, backpack sprayers and injection irrigation systems).
