Nematodes offer a natural solution that is easy on bees and beneficial organisms, and our easy-to use packaging makes application virtually foolproof.
Ajax, Ontario (PRWEB) May 10, 2015
A pest-free lawn and garden that is easy on the earth has never been more accessible, thanks to an innovative new product from The Environmental Factor™.
Launched May 5 at the National Hardware Show, Nema-globe™ Nematodes boasts patent-pending technologies that deliver tried-and-true nematodes, in a more accessible and easier-to-use formulation for home gardeners.
“Nematodes are among the most-researched and most-effective biological controls available to treat common lawn and garden insects, but because they are living organisms, they typically require refrigeration and can be challenging to use,” says Lorelei Hepburn, President of The Environmental Factor.
“With Nema-globe™, we have removed the need for refrigeration and extended the shelf-life. The product can be featured more prominently in home and garden centres as the go-to natural solution for consumers,” Hepburn says.
Nema-globe™ nematodes are a highly effective, easy-to-use insect control product for grubs, ants, fungus gnats and many other soil-living insects. The product offers a shelf life of more than six months, compared to traditional nematode products that last as little as four weeks. And, because the product does not require refrigeration, it can be prominently featured on store shelves alongside chemical-based insect control solutions.
Consumer demand has shifted in recent years, and chemical treatments are increasingly being challenged by regulators and consumers alike as the most viable solution for managing lawn and garden pests.
“Nematodes offer a natural solution that is easy on bees and beneficial organisms, and our easy-to use packaging makes application virtually foolproof,” says Hepburn.
Nema-globe™ was developed with ease-of-use in mind. The Nema-globe™ bio-pouch can be added to most common lawn and garden sprayers on the market, or to a watering can for smaller areas. The Environmental Factor also offers a pre-loaded Nema-globe™ nematode sprayer.
