THIS ITEM CANNOT BE CANCELLED OR REFUNDED ONCE ORDERED.
ENTONEM is a package of live beneficial nematodes (Steinernema feltiae). Steinernema feltiae are entomopathogenic, or insecticidal, nematodes that are effective against larvae of various immature (larvae) dipterous insects such as Sciarid flies, fungus gnats, tipulids, and mushroom flies. These insect pests occur mainly in organic environments that are moist. These insects would normally cause damage to young plant material such as cuttings and seedlings.
The nematodes enter through openings in the larva like respiratoy openings, mouth, or anus. Once the nematode has entered the larva it begins to feed and a bacteria is released from inside the nematode that multiplies and spreads inside the insect rapidly. The bacteria breaks down the host larva into materials that the nematodes feed on.
IMPORTANT: Nematodes are live organisms that are shipped directly from the manufacturer via UPS Next Day Air so they do not die during transit. A physical address is required for UPS to deliver your package. Nematodes are only shipped twice a week:

QWill Cedar oil, such as go gnats affect the nematodes
AWe apologize we are not familiar with Go Gnats. Cedar Oil should not affect Nematodes. because the Nematodes thrive in soil. Cedar Oil wil lnot leach into soil.

QWhat to use to get rid of nematodes?
The look like skinny caterpillars about 1" long with lots of legs. I have 3 dogs and these worms are crawling up the wood posts in my carport and coming into my house.
ANematodes are usually microscopic insects that in some situations attack plants. Have you had the pest you are seeing properly identified? If not, is there any way for you to submit a picture to email@example.com so we can help you positively ID this pest so we can properly recommend a product for your needs?

QWill Entonem work on controlling flea larvae in your yard?
Larvae of Sciarid flies (Sciaridae). Immature dipterous insects, including mushroom flies, fungus gnats, and tipulids as well some lepidopterous larvae.
AENTONEM is labeled for the larvae of Sciarid flies (Sciaridae). Immature dipterous insects, including mushroom flies, fungus gnats, and tipulids as well some lepidopterous larvae. It is not specifically labeled for fleas. We would recommend our Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit. It comes with an insecticide and an IGR (insect growth regulator) to stop the fleas from reproducing.
