This is a subject near and dear to everyone's heart (at least those in
existing or potential borer country)

There have been several discussions on nematodes and there are lots of
postings in the archives about the subject..I think these two forms have been
mentioned before but I would have check to be sure. The last I remember there
had been no real test with controls conducted, but I may be all wet about that.

Any article about borers and/or nematodes is very interesting to all and worth
reporting on.
