Q.Can nematodes be applied in Fall to control figeater beetles?

Zone Zone 24 | Anonymous added on October 2, 2019 | Answered

The green figeater beetles destroyed most of my black mission figs this past summer. The tree sits happily in a large garden filled in with star jasmine. The tree is healthy and prolific but the mulch builds up under the star jasmine and cannot be removed. Would applying nematodes now (early October) kill off the larvae from the figeater beetles? Will the nematodes hurt the lizards that live under the star jasmine?
