#Use nematodes to kill larvae. Nematodes are parasitic insect-eating round worms that feed on the grubs in the ground, providing an organic pest control method. Common nematode types include Steinernema Feltiae and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora.<ref>https://ift.tt/3a9HBZY> Place nematodes in the soil in late August or early September to begin treating the grubs for the next year.<ref>https://ift.tt/3c6unzb> But you can apply nematodes as soon as there is evidence of Japanese beetle activity in your yard.<ref>http://www.nematodes.com/</ref>[[Image:Kill Japanese Beetles Step 1 Version 3.jpg|center]]

#*Make sure the nematodes are fresh because they are living organisms. Water the ground before you spread them out, and keep the soil moist after you apply. You can also apply nematodes in mulch. For 50 or 100 million nematodes mix, use 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water.

#*Beneficial nematodes only attack soil dwelling pests, such as Japanese beetles, fleas, German cockroaches, termites, and ants. They are not harmful to people, animals, plants, or earthworms.<ref>https://ift.tt/1CUNXcj>
