Lawn Patrol – Heterorhabditatid Spp.What is it?
Technically, “Field Guardian” is a combination of “Guardian” a sub strain of the Steinernematidae family, and “Lawn Patrol” is a sub strain of the Heterorhabditatid family. Beneficial, entomogenous (insect parasitic) nematodes. Nematodes are one of the most abundant groups of living creatures in the world, with species ranging from pests of plants and animals to beneficial species like this one. This microscopic creature can survive in oxygen rich water or in the root zone of your plants. “Field Guardian” will not harm plants, animals or humans.What does it attack?
“Field Guardian Nematodes” actively searches for insects, insect pupa and insect larvae in places that are constantly moist. “Field Guardian Nematodes” can be used to control;
Many other insects that spend part of their life cycle in the root zone can also be controlled. “Field Guardian Nematodes” do not kill other types of nematodes. We have been rearing beneficial nematodes since 1986, and have located a sub-strain we feel is far superior to those used in the past. Under ideal conditions, “Field Guardian” can survive more than 90 days without a host insect. Once “Field Guardian” locate and enter a host, it will kill the host, reproduce within it and the offspring will exit in search of more host insects; repeating the cycle.

Releasing 1 million of these nematodes over 2,000 ft2 works out to approximately 500 nematodes per ft2. As a preventative, they should be applied every 60 days to greenhouse crops. For outdoor applications, usually they should be applied in the early Spring as soon as the frost has gone out of the ground. Since they can survive for 60 – 90 days before finding a host, they will be in place as the insect activity increases with warmer temperatures.
