How does SuperNemos work?

TIP: Your nematodes are busy working their magic, unseen under the soil. If you want to see proof you can sprinkle some live mealworms (available at any good fishing outlets) on the soil in a contained area and see how they are affected by nematode action.

Nematodes are applied to the soil, and live in the soil where they locate their hosts. The nematode infective stage enters the insect and begins to feed on its blood and internal organs. Soon after it begins to feed, it releases unique bacteria which it carries internally. Those bacteria infect the insect, reproduce quickly, and kill the insect within 30 to 48 hours.

The nematodes thrive upon this food, which becomes available as the decaying insect is broken down by the unique bacteria.

The nematode forms an adult stage and begins to produce thousands of eggs. These eggs mature and about 2‐3 generations of nematodes are produced in the decaying insect.

Reproduction continues until the nematodes sense that the decaying insect will not support further reproduction by the nematode.

At that time, all of the nematode offspring mature only to the infective juvenile stage and begin to emerge from the host insect to look for more viable live insects to infect. The infective juvenile, IJ3, is the third nymphal stage of the nematode. It has a double thick skin, which is best equipped to survive in nature until it can find a new host.
