Yes! While nematodes are generally considered to be pests themselves, you can actually use parasitic nematodes to help destroy other common pests. Nematodes added to your garden will fight against an array of pests that would ordinarily destroy your plants. You can also use nematodes to kill fleas by sprinkling them in places outside that your pets usually play.
