Spreading Beneficial Nematodes in Fairfax, VA

Real Estate Agent with Elizabeth Murphree @ Ikon Realty of Ashburn 5 NRDS: 847011238

This time of year, it is helpful to add beneficial nematodes to your lawn and garden areas.  Recently, at night, my colleague was telling me about the beneficial nematodes being spread in their lawn.  I had heard of this practice but wondered if it was too late in the year?  The quick reply was the war against the Japanese beetle.  My profile pick is with my silver toy poodle, Paco.  These beneficial nematodes being spread in the yard of Fairfax County homeowners can also help kill ticks, fleas, and the pesky Japanese Beetle very quickly.

With thoughts of all the horrible pesticides our furbabies can be exposed to in the lawn, I wanted to post this helpful tip to homeowners as it is easy to do and helpful to our enviroment.  Just remember that you want the Beneficial Nematodes.  I googled it and located some quite easily.

I have never heard of "nematodes" so I'm glad to read this!  Very beneficial.  I hand weed my yard, and believe in no poison at all.  Weed killer kills more than weeds!!  Thanks for the garden tip Elizabeth Murphree
