Despite claims to the contrary, overall,there are no viable, efficacious, or economi-cal Green Alternatives to replace conven-tional pest control products.Virtually all Green Alternatives are BOGUS,displaying negative characteristics such asthe following ―• Green Alternatives may be ALMOST TO-TALLY INEFFECTIVE except under very spe-cific circumstances• Green Alternatives may be PROHIBITEDin some jurisdictions• Green Alternatives may be questionablyHIGHER IN TOXICITY• Green Alternatives may be STUNNINGLYMORE EXPENSIVE to use when compared toconventional pest control products• Green Alternatives may be SUPPLIED bythe same Environmental–Terror–Organizations that sought the prohibition of conventional pest control products• Green Alternatives may have NEGATIVESIDE–EFFECTS like phyto–toxicity ( an ef-fect that adversely affects plant growth ) ormetal corrosion or rodent–attractant• Green Alternatives may NOT be regis-tered as pest control products, and there-fore, are UNREGULATED• Green Alternatives may NOT have a fullrange safety information such as HUMANTOXICITY and ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT,which is the case with conventional pestcontrol products• Green Alternatives may require EX-TREMELY–HIGH–INPUTS OF ACTIVE INGRE-DIENT since they will otherwise be less ef-fective• Green Alternatives may require MOREPERSONAL PROTECTION for the user• Green Alternatives may NOT BE SAFER,NOT BETTER, NOT MORE EFFECTIVE
Description of entomo–pathogenic nematodes
Nematodes (also called entomo–pathogenicor beneficial nematodes) are micro–scopicroundworms, or tiny worm–like parasitesthat lack any appendages. They are foundin products that are classified by the gov-ernment as bio–pesticides since they con-tain living organisms. This product acts asa biological turf insecticide that, incredibly,is NOT FEDERALLY REGISTERED as a pestcontrol product in Canada.The term «
» comesfrom two Greek words ― «
»which means insect, and «
»meaning causing disease.
Classification of entomo–pathogenic nematodes
Entomo–pathogenic nematode products areconsidered by the environmental–maniac–activists as a so–called low–risk green al-ternative to conventional insecticides likeimidacloprid.Nematodes have been classified, or de-scribed, in a multitude of ways in order toappeal to enviro–maniacs, to the public, andto the Green Space Industry.Here are some examples ―• Beneficial nematode product• Bio–control of insect pest• Biological control agent• Biological insecticide• Bio–pesticide or bio–insecticide• Bio–suppression of insect pests• Commercial nematodes• Entomo–pathogenic nematodes• Exotic nematodes• Infective juvenile nematodes• Low or reduced–risk pesticide• Microscopic worms or roundworms• Natural insecticide or pesticide• Natural organism• Nematode product• Parasitic nematodes
