I have been aware too of this Philippa.
I too think science right now is all about nematodes ...scientists regularly back track on most everything when problems arise. Agree too about widespread heavy use...we don't really know long term effects. will we be encouraging super nematodes to escape their designated roles?
what else do we do? I use nematodes once a year for lawns and will use them in veg patch for slugs, snails and pests. Supposedly better than chemicals
i can remember people on the forum recommending glyphosate but now sayng how dangerous it is. It makes me chuckle at times everything we think is helpful eventually is withdrawn
those sticky yellow cards.....yes, they trap the good guys too
like us plants develop resistance to many pests, diseases etc. If grown well.
Mother nature is not the wonderful caring, nurturing parent many suggest ......she delights in everything fighting and adapting for survival. well, survival of the fittest without any compassion. Not a nice mother
oooooo, you set me off Philippa. Prob be lynched now; ha ha
