As to viruses, It is my understanding so far that they need help such as transmission through a bug bite or the borehole of a nematode. My shorthand reads this as control insects equals control of viruses in a general sense. I am sure there are some that have a transmission vector that is odd. Cucumber beetles and stink bugs are my local and most prevelant problems, with bouts of mites and aphids. By tilling the humagro product into the soil, It has an opportunity to catch nema in between life stages and severely stunt the population. I only have a 6 inch tiller, so I am not going that deep, but then they do not move that far either, so soil prep really helps the plants get up to a good size and production before the attacks resume late in the season and by then it does not matter nearly as much as it would in the beginning of the season when the plants are so small.
