Don’t let the appearance of these containers fool you. These little unassuming containers from Arbico contain a powerhouse blend of beneficial nematodes. It is how I keep my yard free from harmful bugs like ants and fleas without the use of chemicals. You can get the variety of nematodes that work best in your yard based on your geographic location. When I first found out about nematodes, about 10 years ago, I was skeptical. However, I have to say that they are very effective in controlling bugs. Since I have a golden retriever and two cats, these nematodes have been the sole reason my yard is flea free. I like that I dont have to treat my animals with flea repellant products.
The Arbico Web site has all sorts of information about what kinds of bugs the nematodes will control. I know you can order them from a variety of vendors, but I’ve always gotten mine from Arbico. They ship relatively quickly and the company is very helpful in responding to issues and questions. You apply the nematodes by mixing them with water and spraying them on your yard. By the way, this isn’t an advertisement, I am just a big fan of this product.
