How does NemaFence® Carpo control pests?

  • Parasitic nematodes contain insect-killing symbiotic bacterium
  • Infectious juvenile nematodes penetrate host through natural openings
  • Once in body cavity, releases symbiotic bacteria to quickly killed host
  • Nematodes multiply in the cadaver
  • New infectious nematodes released to search for more soil-dwelling pest grubs.
