Re: Foliar nematodes questions

Ok, here's another question for you.

We use Zerotol, and since we use a lot of things in addition, I have no idea how effective it is. But since the main ingredient in Zerotol is peroxide - yes, I know there are other things in it - and since Zerotol is not sold in homeowner sizes as far as I know, how effective would it be if you just used peroxide instead?
Zerotol is more concentrated than drugstore peroxide, but since you dilute it before use, it seems it would be simple to substitute peroxide and simply dilute it less. Are the other ingredients in Zerotol that important? I don't doubt that they make the product more effective, but I think we pay close to $100 for the smallest size available here, 3 gallons of concentrate I think. I doubt that many homeowners want to invest that much.

I just spoke with an assistant at Dr. Lochart's lab at the U of Minnesota - which incidentally is about 1/2 mile from my house. He is the Ph.D. that has done work on viruses for the Hosta Association. We were both wondering what the rest of you are doing for foliar nematodes.

She suggested drenching Hostas and the surrounding soil with a 2% of a product called Zerotol but also was very curious as to what I would learn on a Internet post. I will share what ever you folks suggest with her as she requested in hopes she can help someone else-which certainly helps every Hosta and garden lover.

Any suggestions or recommendations?
