The beneficial nematode Heterohabditis bacteriophora is the most aggressive species in hunting down and killing thick skinned soil grubs. Apply Nematodes Terranem  in early summer to combat wireworms and weevils. Applying Terranem once, and then 28 days later is thought to be more effective against wireworm infestation. Outdoor temperature must be at least 14°C for Terranem to be effective. Predatory nematodes are effective against over 250 species of insect pests. Only insects that have a soil dwelling stage (egg, larvae, pupae or adult) can be controlled by nematodes. Therefore, the nematodes are best used as a preventative. In field crops they infect cutworms, grubs, root borer larvae, root weevil larvae, flea beetle larvae, and other pests. Parasitic nematodes invade and destroy white grubs, pill bugs eggs & larvae, Japanese beetle larvae, crane fly larvae, and other harmful pests commonly found in lawns and turf. This is the best biological control for European chafer beetle larvae, and should be applied in late July, in order to parasitize the eggs and early larval stages.

The fifty million nematodes in the package will cover an area of 230m2 (2,500 square feet).

    I ordered these at the end of May, I live in Manitoba, and have a terrible grub problem. Or should I say HAD a grub problem. I have been doing a lot of digging in the garden this year, moving and dividing plants. I am happy to say instead of seeing live grubs, I am seeing dead and dying grubs. These little critters are doing there job. I have lost so many shrubs and trees because of grubs. I am happy to say the ones I have left are doing much better.
    they are worth every penny, and I will order them again next year.

    I applied 1 package to a section of my vegetable garden that was infested with sow bugs (pill bugs or wood bugs), earwigs, beetles, cut worms and wire worms. Now my vegetables are no longer full of holes from these pests. A great organic natural solution — I will be ordering more to do the rest of my garden next summer. Thank you!
