Nematode Musings

Cost of living in CH is high, people who complain about this most often do not work at the checkout at Migros, but have a company car, corporate housing and pay lower taxes than in their home countries. Switzerland is not a low price island, and within reason this seems a small price to pay for the spectacular quality of life. Within reason is the important phrase here though…

Now if you need to kill some grubs, because they are feeding on your beloved plants, and hence you are in the market for some tiny, but deadly Nematodes, a pack of German Nematodes: combination of Heterorhabditis bacteriophora and Steinernema feltiaewill  set you back: 15.50 Euros which is approximately 19 Chf , including post and packaging. Ordered online, at home, while drinking tea. Their Swiss nematode cousins, also a combination of Heterorhabditis bacteriophora and Steinernema feltiae, clock in at 27.50 Chf…… At LANDI – where a sticker proclaims: prix bas en permanence – permanently low prices …….. Don’t get me wrong, there is always a good reason to go to  LANDI, you might need some Carbolineum to protect your paddock fences, or some milking grease to help with those udders (EUTRA) – Nematodes, however, aren’t on the list anymore. But beer certainly is, an experimental buy, because I liked the picture on the label, led me to experience – LANDI Farmer German Weissbeer (made in Germany) – 500ml for 60 Rappen- tastes like its made with fresh spring water, best beer we’ve  had in ages…….

So get beer at LANDI,  go online,  open the beer and get your nematodes here:.. at http://shop.e-nema.de/index.php/cat/c21_nematop-cool-sup–reg—sup-.html.
