Nematode extraction

I recently played out some rotten onions onto potato dextrose agar and I noticed that the plate is crawling with nematodes, alongside the fungal growths. What is the best way to extract the nematodes from the plate?

The picture is the plate with the nematodes

Microscope to spot nematode eggs?

Hi there! I am a snail keeper, and have had to deal with my snails getting infested with nematodes in the past. Does anyone have affordable microscope recommendations so I can spot potential infestations within my snails? Just now is the second time within 3 years of my snails getting infested, and sending fecal samples to laboratories is pretty pricey when you have to keep track of 8 snails :(

I appreciate any help!

1080p 50x zoom, help identify!

Substrate is rockwool with a mineral based fertilizer. Temps range between 68°F and 72°F at a pH of 6.2-6.8.

Subject in the video seems to be correlated to root damage. I could not identify a sucking probiscus, but abrasions and infections dot the root system.

Interestingly, the main subject here is slow and large (2-4 mm long), but the last minute shows a much smaller (0.5-1 mm) much FASTER zoomie tode.

Challenge is on! Who dis be?

Can anyone tell if this low-fi Float Test sample may contain nematodes/larvae, or do they not look/behave like this? Microscope 2000x

Distribution and Abundance of Nematodes in Horticultural Production in Paraguay | Plant Health Progress Editor's Pick

An Initiative to Improve Soil Health and Food Production in Paraguay

Horacio Lopez-Nicora et al. created a national research consortium to explore the distribution and abundance of plant-parasitic nematodes on vegetable farms in Paraguay—generating an interactive map based on the survey results. Additionally, the findings suggest that soil texture is significantly associated with nematode abundance, which can be related to edaphic factors and farming practices such as crop selection. This provides an important first step to developing sustainable and economic agricultural systems in Paraguay.

This may be a stupid question, I’m just an amateur indoor plant enthusiast, but I have found this mound of, something, in my coffea arabica plant and I’m wondering if this could be nematodes/nematode-adjacent….

Is this guy a nematode, or too hard to tell? Found in my indoor moss tray.

This was in my energy drink (not moving). Could this be a nematode? It seems very lifelike.
