Hi Bob,

How do you apply them for borers? As a foliar spray? Some instructions talk
about injecting them into the insect burrows in the plant stalks.

I am a regular user of beneficial nematodes for the same purposes in the
vegetable garden and lawn as you described.  I have also extended this to my
bearded iris because I had such a difficult time with iris borer as I garden
organically.  It has been quite effective and I have had several years now
where we have been "borer free."
