Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of entomopathogenic nematodes to control pests such as bluegrass billbugs, cutworms, sod webworms, and Japanese beetle larvae. These nematodes are available at local garden centers, and can greatly reduce the amount of money spent on insecticides, while at the same time being much easier on the environment. Gives details from research done involving entomopathogenic nematodes and waxworm larvae. The research done on entomopathogenic nematodes revealed that they do not harm "good bugs", hence the title.
