Strawberry worms

Postby beeman » Aug 14, 2008 10:19 pm

Having spent days searching the web I have nailed down the culprit of my poor strawberry patch. Foliar and root nematodes!! Small fine worms in both the fruit and the roots of the plants. These are not sap bugs, I also have those as well.
Fine and dandy to know what they are, but no where can I find a treatment suitable for a small garden, so, before my strawberries are all dead, can someone please help with a soil drench which will kill the little bug....ers?

Can't help you with a soil drench, sorry, but, planting french marigolds in infested soils is said to repel them.
