This was really cool. Imagine a fungi lassoing a nematode worm and eating it. Here is the home video. Or remora style creatures like on a whale shark only with evil intent for the nema that want your tomatoes. It does not take a big step to see that organic matter supporting the right type of fungi can have good effect suppressing pathogenic nematodes.

Haha! We plan on hunting down a tardigrade one of these days, lots of mossy trees round here so I think we stand a good chance of finding one. The microscopic world is fascinating!

Gardening is not for the faint of heart.

As long as I don't have to look at them up close and personal! LOL! Yes, a bit creepy looking at the creepy expanding and contracting body!
