About 80 million pounds of synthetic chemical pesticides are used on lawns and gardens in America each year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Not only are the chemicals harsh on the environment, they pose significant health risks.


Beneficial nematodes are underground pest hunters that control over 250 different species of insects that spend some part of their lives underground. They are an efficient organic insect control method that kill most insects before they become adults.
