Summary "Insect parasitic and insect killing nematodes provide some of the most promising new alteratives to chemical insecticides. They can be used to control a wide range of insects, are non-polluting, non-toxic and are environmentally friendly in many other ways. They are compatible with other biological and chemical agents and have the distinct advantage over most other forms of insect pest control of being able to seek out pests in cryptic habitats such as tree borers or insects living deep within the soil."--BOOK COVER
