Natural Grub and Soil-Dwelling Insect Control
Natural Insect Control
Beneficial nematodes provide a safe, effective control of fungus gnats and Western Flower Thrips. A single application containing the beneficial nematodeSteinernema feltiae is sufficient for preventing fungus gnat outbreaks or control in the beginning phase of an outbreak. It is also a valuable tool in thrip control to help disrupt the portion of the life cycle that occurs in the growing medium, which will decrease the adult population. This assures that your greenhouse crops have the most vigorous root system possible. It is safe and easy to use on all crops at any growth stage.
