Why are nematodes bad for soil?

When used in excess, nematodes can have a negative impact on soil health. In particular, nematode populations that become too large can cause damage to beneficial microbes and earthworms, disturbing the natural balance of nutrients in the soil. However, nematodes can be helpful when applied properly as part of an integrated pest management program targeting termites – they are actually one of the most effective forms of biological pest control for this purpose!
