Steinernema feltiae are entomopathogenic, or insecticidal, nematodes that are effective against larvae of various immature (larvae) dipterous insects such as Sciarid flies, fungus gnats, tipulids, and mushroom flies.
Gardening can require an array of products, but basics can include insecticides, fertilizers or food, and fungicides or other disease-control products.
Fruit tree & vegetable garden spray: There are many different types of insecticides formulated for natural and organic gardens. A very common insecticide is Neem oil, used for controlling soft-bodied insects like aphids and spider mites. Neem oil can be organic, and can also be used as a fungicide, making it a multi-use, economical non-toxic pest control option. Organic insecticides are sometimes regarded as less-effective, but choosing the right one for your needs can eliminate ineffective outdoor pest control measures.
Plant foods or fertilizers: Natural or organic plant foods and fertilizers can help improve the yield of your fruits or vegetables. While natural and organic fertilizers can take a bit longer to take effect, they’re just as effective as synthetic ones.
Disease control: Many times, natural substances from the earth can help your plants fight of and heal diseases like blights, spots, and other detrimental diseases that may plague your plants. For example, calcium can help ward off and heal tomato rot and cure many other things in a variety of vegetables.
Using Fruit Tree Spray & Vegetable Garden Pest Control Products
Safety: Even if a product is labeled as all natural or organic, it does not mean it is a harmless product. You will still have to read all warnings and directions before applying or deciding if the product is right for your garden.
Harvest intervals: The key to using any garden product on your vegetables is the time between applying the product and harvesting and eating the produce. This will be listed clearly on the label; with some products you can use it right up to the day of harvesting, others you might have to wait a few weeks.
