Does this kill grubs too?

Asked by thatoneperson March 12, 2018

Answers

These nematodes will kill gnat grubs that primarily live in house plants only. If your referring to larger grubs that live primarily in outdoor grass—no. You will have to purchase another kind—probably from your local nursery. Google “grubs” and you can research more about the variety of grubs that live in soil.

Do I remove the nematodes from the pouch?

Asked by Patrick February 13, 2018
4
Answers

No. I soaked the pouch in water for 30 minutes and continued to agitate the water during application. The instructions say not to break the pouch open. From what I gather the nematodes are stored inside small sponges within the pouch, but are small enough to slip through the pouch.

There were supposed to be two packages in the shipment, but there was only one. The second was to be applied 7-10 days after the first. Also, the product covered only a small area.

I had questions regarding different directions on the printed label from Home Depot's web site from what was on the box when it arrived. I called the 1-800 number for the company and spoke to Jeff. He clarified the discrepancy and was very informative and helpful. I have treated my troubled plnats twice as directed and have seen a great improvement. The product seems to have worked at this point and I will keep in touch with Jeff as things progress. They have another product for maintenance which I will buy if needed. Satisfied for sure

I had hoped for better results, though it is an organic treatment. It knocked them back some, using sticky traps to catch adults. but did not totally eradicate them. This is my second batch of nematodes. Let me mention I had previously used a Neem soil drench and there may have been some residue in the soil that affected the nematodes. Time to take my seedlings outside, so that ends my infestation this year. I will try nematodes at first sighting of gnats in the fall.

This product really did the trick! I followed the instructions on the package exactly and did two treatments 7 days apart. I noticed a significant reduction in the number of gnats after day 7 and after day 14 the numbers were cut in half. I am currently at day 28 from the first treatment and have seen no signs of infestation whatsoever. You can even fertilize during treatment as long as you keep it organic. I had tried several organic solutions prior to using this product with disappointing results. This stuff really works!
