I found some information in my latest catalog on the nematodes.
Their called "Grub-Away" nematodes. They attack
weevils,borers,cutworms,grubs and flea larvae. It's a new strain cross
bred with the Hb strain. After searching and the finding a grub or borer
to prey on, they release bacteria to kill their victim. The nematodes
feed on and reproduce within the borers body, then "explode" out and go
in search of more prey. This information comes from the Gardens Alive
Leslie Jobe' Omaha NE  Where mother nature tried to do not only the
bugs, but everything in with an early snow storm. (mother nature is also
known as "El Nino")
