    No, not that kind. This is what 3 billion juvenile nematodes look like in their water soluble matrix. They're introduced to my bogs to combat girdler moth. The nematodes enter the moth larvae and bacteria, with which the nematodes have been inoculated, destroy the larvae. I'm so green I can hardlly stand it.

    No. Becker Underwood isn't nearly that generous.

    I hope you're planning to do a rigorous accounting to make sure you actually got 3 billion of them...

    I just get mine from Delmer, my pesticide dealer. It has to be the right kind of nematode and I can't apply anything on my bogs that doesn't have cranberry on the label. I can't imagine I'd get a better deal anywhere else. I think they all drink out of the same toilet.

    I bet they get them from sushi restaurants.

    Sorry, Dale, but Chris is a sushi fan, too. You're surrounded.

    That's no surprise. I remember when he posted photos of that baitshop/restaurant in Florida and said that's where he had lunch. I became suspicious, then.
