There are several methods for killing pest insects in your lawn, garden, or potted plants. Beneficial Nematodes from Green Gardener are one solution that can be used to safely combat a wide range of pest insects. Some of the many advantages beneficial nematodes have over chemical pesticide alternatives are as follows:
Beneficial Nematodes are an All Natural and Organic Form of Pest Control
Beneficial nematodes are naturally occurring predators of many pest insects. Beneficial nematodes are a completely natural and organic way to combat a wide range of pest insects.
Beneficial Nematodes are Safe for People, Pets and Plants
Despite the fact that beneficial nematodes actively hunt and kill pest insects, they are non-toxic and completely safe for humans, pets, and plants. BioLogic’s nematodes are a great, safe alternative to harsh chemical pesticides and are safe to use in your home, lawn, and garden around children and pets.
Pest Insects Do Not Build a Resistance to Beneficial Nematodes
Pest insects can develop resistance to conventional chemical pesticides, requiring stronger and harsher treatments in the future. Beneficial nematodes do not pose this risk; insects do not develop resistance to these natural pest predators!
Beneficial Nematodes are a Targeted Control
Many common insect pests are targeted by the nematodes in BioLogic’s products, but many beneficials such as ladybirds, praying mantises, earthworms, and bees are completely unaffected. Unlike chemical pesticides, beneficial nematodes can be used without fear of harming other non-target organisms.
Beneficial Nematodes Last Longer than Traditional Chemical Pesticides
Beneficial nematodes live in soil and can control pest insect populations for up to 18 months after application, depending on environmental conditions. When compared to chemical pesticide alternatives, this means you can go much longer between treatments.
