    Is anyone using Nematodes as the only control agent for grubs?? There is an article in the Columbus Dispatch that speaks favorably towards nemotodes as an errdication agent for grubs (Jap Beetle). My minimal research (primarily OSU stuff) says that nematodes do not work that well and can errdicate BT. It does speak of "Specific Parasitic Nemotodes" for each pest and you have to select the one for the pest(s) that you have. Also seems that nemotodes are light sensitive and they recommend applying on a "cloudy" day...not too many of those in early Aug.

    Anyone having any luck with Nematodes as a stand alone natural alternative??

    Thanks in advance..
