Predatory nematode that eats other nematodes

Soil Foodweb Inc. about us
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Example of a beneficial species of nematode that hunts and eats other nematodes in the soil. Predatory nematodes help balance the populations of all other kinds of nematodes. Body waste products recycle nitrogen and other nutrients back into the soil. Predatory nematodes should be present in a balanced soil foodweb. These are very large nematodes that are easily killed by plowing and other physical disturbance of soils.
