<< Bob Solberg is quoted below,

 February, about a month before emergence. You can do this in the kitchen
 sink with tap water and a good thermometer.The proper cooking time is
 somewhere between 120 degrees F for 20-25 minutes to 130 degrees F for 10

Thanks Dan.   Jody Fetzer, the Plant Pathologist / IPM specialist at the
Landscape Arboretum, posted a good follow up to the messages that Bob Solberg
sent to the AHS robin last year regarding Nematodes. This article actually
explains how to see them. I have sent a message asking if I may forward Jody's
posting to our group here.
