Likewise, people ask, how long do Nematodes live in the ground?
Beneficial Nematodes have a two month shelf life if refrigerated. However, they can live in the soil, at levels high enough to control pest insects, for around 18 months.
Beside above, do nematodes die in winter? Nematodes reproduce in many pests such as beetle grubs, providing a self-perpetuating population. They do not, however, reproduce in certain pests such as fleas, and may therefore need to be applied every few weeks. Typically, nematodes will not survive through the winter season.
In this manner, when should I spray nematodes?
There is two times during which you should apply beneficial nematodes. These are spans of time when grubs are visible on the lawn. The first is during the mid-May to mid-June range. The second comes in mid-August and lasts until part way through October.
Can nematodes harm dogs?
Nematodes are a safe choice for children and pets. Because Green Earth Nematodes will not survive in temperatures over 30 C, they are completely safe to use on areas where children and pets will play. Even if they are ingested, the nematodes will quickly die-off, as our internal temperatures are higher than 30 C.
