Moisten soil prior to application & lightly water again after applying Nematodes Beneficial Nematodes may be mixed and used in a watering can or hose-end sprayer. Place the entire sponge in a clean bowl or bucket. Pour at least one quart of lukewarm water over the sponge and repeatedly squeeze for a few minutes to get the Nematodes out of the sponge and into the water.
Repeat this process with a second bowl or bucket of clean water. (Once nematodes are removed from the sponge, you must disperse them within 1 hour.) Discard the sponge and pour both containers of water into a sprayer or watering can. Some nematodes will be on the interior surface of the bag. Rinse out the bag with water and pour into the sprayer or watering can. At this stage, you should have the amount of nematodes indicated on the open bags suspended in about two quarts of water. Add clean water to dilute the suspension and to make up the volume that your spray or application apparatus requires for application of said coverage area.
Customer: If storage is necessary place nematodes in a regular household refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (DO NOT FREEZE)
