No active ingredients are, at present, available exclusively for nematode control. Soil-inhabiting stages of cyst nematodes, stem and bulb eelworm, and some ectoparasitic root eelworms are effectively reduced by soil incorporation of granular pesticides, such as aldicarb, at planting time of crops such as potatoes and onions. This group of chemicals acts systemically on leaf nematodes of plants such as chrysanthemum and dahlia.
