Default This explains why nemotodes are so difficult to get rid of...

I saw this article today about how they have successfully defrosted 2 x 42,000 year old nemotodes that were frozen in the permafrost. Not sure why they would want to risk waking them up especially because thats how most horror films start, lol! What do you think? Pete

What do I think?

This link will tell you why I think as I do.

Yes very interesting from the permafrost but I wouldn't be concerned b/c of what is said in the link above about how many kinds and how many species of nematodes there really are.

Maybe I'd get scared if they could determine the genus and species of what they currently have.
