Beneficial Organisms

Beneficial Organisms

Beneficial organisms can come from any of the microscopic groups of organisms:

  • Bacteria
  • Fungi
  • Viruses
  • Nematodes
  • Protozoans

Many are vital to soil health. For instance, fungi or bacteria benefit your soil and plants by breaking down organic matter to release nutrients for absorption and helping to improve the tilth (the "fluffiness" ) of the soil. Good tilth allows roots to grow more easily.

Some beneficial organisms can be utilized for natural insect pest control. We utilize their amazing functions as microscopic warriors against common pests. Some examples of this bio-rational control include:

  • Semaspore and Nolo Bait (Nosema locustae) for control of grasshoppers .
  • Bacillus thurengiensis Israelensis(Bti) for control of mosquito and fungus gnat larvae..
  • Beauveria bassiana for control of many damaging pest insects. .
  • Milky Spore (Bacillus popilliae) for control of Japanese Beetles
