A Bug Bonanza in the Garden
The cure for what’s buggin’ you!
Aphids on your tomatoes, fleas in your beds or grubs in your sleazy soil? Never fear! An organic team of four is available at your local Texas garden center, ready to feast on the irritating insects infesting your landscape. Each member of the posse specializes in catching and consuming harmful bugs to protect your flowers, veggies, shrubs and trees. So put away the chemicals, because this good bug bonanza will shack up in your garden to patrol for pests throughout the growing season.
Meet the team:
Beneficial Nematode (BN) – Don’t let his microscopic size fool you! BN attacks and kills more than 230 kinds of soil dwelling and wood boring pests, such as flea larvae, white grubs, cutworms, corn root worms, strawberry weevils, gypsy moth larvae, cabbage root maggots and fungus gnat larvae. Each BN container detains 7 million active warriors ready to hunt down, penetrate, and kill most soil dwelling pests.
