:-)  No carping taken.  Nematodes are just like humans, the good ones will
eat their veggies even if they don't like them.  TIC ummm, it doesn't
distinguish.  The theory is that where there are no nematodes it is a much
better environment then if there are good and bad (don't know if I agree
with that).  Remember this is a theory, nothing more, but I am willing to
test it out for a while....why not?
