Foliar Nematodes

Hi Margaret and all,
         Foliar nematodes are actually a small wormlike creature that gets
into hosta (and other plant) leaves and destroy cells until the entire leaf
collapses. Once in a garden they spread fairly rapidly. Unfortunately there
aren't many really good controls available for use in home gardens, but a
miticide called Pylon is showing well in tests. It's expensive to purchase,
but will go a long ways. It hasn;t yet been tested in garden conditions, but
seemed to be working well in greenhouses. A pesticide license is not required
to buy or use it, so it may be an answer to the problem.


Below are some links to information about foliar nematodes:
