Dear Margret,
In addition to the GREAT advice given by my friend Dennis (a commercial and
VERY knowledgeable grower here in S. Florida, I offer the following
additional advice in CAPITALS below the message from Dennis (below)

Margaret:

Temik is very toxic systemic.
I haven't used it in 30 years.
The rule of thumb here is that you must follow the label directions.
It should be absorbed into the roots and tuber thus killing any nematodes
and any
thing else in the soil.---OR NEARBY, INCLUDING CARELESS AROID GROWERS WHO DO
NOT WEAR RUBBER GLOVES, A DUST MASK, AND WHATEVER OTHER SAFETY EQUIP
RECOMENDED!!!!

JULIUS
