Parasitic Nematodes

Does anyone have experience, good or bad, using Parasitic Nematodes in the garden?
I am thinking they might be a good thing to 'clear' my garden of some of it's problems!

Hi Beeman:
We haven't used them, but I think one needs to have a reasonably specific plan in mind.
There are various nematode species that are host specific.
A friend has just written an article in our local Rhodie Newsletter on the use for ridding rhodie plantings of the Black Vine weevil using nematodes.

I have to read the article in depth before I can add the specifics.
The nematode species he mentions is Steinernema kraussei(Nemasys-L)

I had a look at the URL you supplied, but all I got was a world map, no articles listed. Do you have a URL to the full article you refer to?
