    Q
    Will ENTONEM work for the control of springtails?
    A

    Unfortunately, the ENTONEM - Live Nematodes (Steinernema feltiae) will not take care of the springtail problem.  Typically, pesticides alone will not take care of a springtail problem. You will not get complete springtail control until you locate the source of the springtails and correct the conditions that are allowing them to thrive. Please take a few minutes to read our article"How to Get Rid of Springtails" to learn more about springtail elimination.

    Q
    When can I spray with Entonem - Live Nematodes to prevent Japanese Beetles?
    When to spray nematodes to best kill Japanese Beetle larvae. I live in the north east US, NJ
    A

    Entonem - LIve Nematodes is not labeled to kill white grubs. If you're interested in live nematodes, Orcon Beneficial Nematodes would be the ones to use. With these Beneficial Nematodes you can apply at any time because they will attack wintering adult insects, diapausing larvae, pupae, and grubs when in the soil, bark, or even ground litter. You also have the option of using Merit Granules to treat before the white grub eggs hatch, for this method of treatment it is best to check with your local cooperative extension office to check for best time of application.

If not, is there any way for you to submit a picture to support@domyownpestcontrol.com so we can help you positively ID this pest so we can properly recommend a product for your needs?

    ENTONEM is labeled for the larvae of Sciarid flies (Sciaridae). Immature dipterous insects, including mushroom flies, fungus gnats, and tipulids as well some lepidopterous larvae. It is not specifically labeled for fleas. We would recommend our Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit. It comes with an insecticide and an IGR (insect growth regulator) to stop the fleas from reproducing.
