What’s bugging you? TV commercials that are twice as loud as the show you’re watching, drivers who don’t use a turn signal or maybe that one friend you have that constantly refers to themselves in the third person. All in all, we all have something that continues to pester us in our lives.
If you’re in the horticulture industry as a commercial grower for a living, the biggest pest in your life may be a fungus gnat or a western flower thrip. One way to combat these pests, is with the use of beneficial nematodes. Beneficial nematodes are simple, microscopic roundworms that attack a targeted pest by entering its natural body openings and release deadly bacteria, then rapidly reproduces to provide a constant population for pest control. Our client, Becker Underwood, is the leading global producer of these tiny microscopic roundworms and have products for commercial growers to combat those daily pests in their lives.
