We are in high 70's at night and mid 90's during the day. I haven't purchased mine as yet since we had a few weeks of no rain which is really unusual. As Nancy said, they have to be kept moist. We have a sprinkler system but with such high temps and lack of summer rains, I'd go broke running that all the time.
I'm kicking myself right now, tho, since I have found ticks on Traveler just this past week which is about the same time I started seeing them last year.
I've made a promise to myself for next year! I think if I get the nematodes in the ground in late Spring, they will locate themselves in the more shady areas of the yard which will probably stay damp enough allowing them to survive thru the extreme summer heat with only moderate rain.
Rock and a hard spot this year.

|jocoyn||Before the night temps drop below 45. You need to be able to keep the ground consistently moist also. If it dries out, they are no good. Best spray time is dusk. I am in SC and going to spray mine this weekend. The folks at Arbico are very helpful.|

|dogfaeries||I'm going to try nematodes on my yard, and have read that you apply them in the spring or fall. Right now it is still 90+ degrees in Oklahoma during the day. When is the best time for me to spray?|

I have great news! Not only will EcoTreat not harm your yard, I think you'll find your yard to much healthier with a decreased presence of bugs that feed on your plants. Most customers experience an increased presence of beneficial bugs such as butterflies and ladybugs with regular use of EcoTreat.
Fleas do not survive long in hot, sunny areas and thrive in the shade. Temperatures above 95 degrees with humidity less than 50% will kill flea larvae. If your lawn sees a lot of sun, you will likely see an increased presence of these pests. Because EcoTreat is applied with water, a thorough soaking of the mulch and soil in the yard will help to eradicate these fleas and other pests such as ticks and mosquitoes.
Thanks again for your question!

Thank you, Wondercide, for your followup.

So glad to hear you've used the EcoTreat before and loved the smell of the cedar! We love it too Whip worms are parasitic worms that originate in the soil, so EcoTreat would be effective against them.
If your pet currently has whip worm, we do carry a product called Neem Bark Powder - a natural antihelminthic - which is known to expel parasitic worms.
Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.

I saw on the company website that Wondercide that Ecotreat is effective at getting hookworm larva or eggs. Does anyone know if it is also effective against whip worms?
I love the smell of the yard after I spray it -- the cedar smell is absolutely wonderful.

Also, he mulches leaves/grass (leaves clippings) which nourish lawn...we barely have any weeds, however, does this contribute to harbouring fleas/ticks and will it affect getting product to the little beasties to kill?
