BIO HOCOSTOP contains beneficial nematodes (EPN – Entomo Pathogenic Nematodes) widely accepted as bio control agents of the larval stage of white grubs. EPN live parasitically inside the infected insect host and produce large number of new juvenile entomopathogenic nematodes. These juveniles search for root grubs and termites and release cells of their symbiotic bacteria from their intestines into the insect body. The bacteria multiply in the insect and the infected host usually dies within 24 to 48 hours.
