Monterey Nematode Control-OMRI Listed-Nematicide

Monterey's Nematode Control with Quillaja Saponaria is a 100% bio-pesticide that controls plant parasitic nematodes in residential lawns and gardens. It may be applied on fruit and nut trees, vegetables, berries, citrus, grapes and ornamentals.

Plant parasitic nematodes are worm-like, microscopic creatures. They infest plant roots. Typical plant parasitic nematodes are root-knot nematodes. These nematodes thrive in hot climates with short winters. Other common plant parasitic nematodes are dagger nematodes, lesion nematodes, and cyst nematodes. Evidence of plant parasitic nematodes causing disease may be found in growth reduction, root impairment, mineral-deficiency symptoms, increased wilting, decreased winter-hardiness and perennials with die-back.

  • Monterey's Nematode Control provides excellent control of Dagger, Root-Knot, Rig, Root Lesion, Spiral Sheath, and Anguina pacifica nematodes.

How Does Quillaja saponaria Work?

The saporins in Monterey Nematode Control come from the Quillaja saponaria tree which is native to Chile. Quillaja saponaria is also called soapbark, in fact it may be ground down to a powder and used as a soap since if makes a lather. This saponaria in the soil causes digestive problems leading to a cellular breakdown in the plant parasitic nematodes. It functions as a repellent and a deterrent against these nematodes.

It works
I use grow bags and many have gotten infested over time. This ERASED the problem in the bags and now I have returned some garden veggies to ground growing and that has proved successful also.

It works
I live in sw Florida and cannot grow veggies without nematodes root problems. I went to grow bags but unfortunately they and my long planters got infected over time. I tried this product and it ended all my problems and even returned some eggplant to the ground for growing.
Use it it works.
Review by WALLY / (Posted on 2/22/2020)
Sometime August 2018 you email me regarding the nematode control I bought from you last July 2018. At that time I just applied it on my oriental vegetables. It was too early then to see results. For the last few years at this time of the year my vegetable gone due to nematode root damage. This time with the use of MONTEREY NEMATODE CONTROL my vegetables are still producing.
