Has Anyone Ever Used Beneficial Nematodes?

I am currently having issues with white worms inside my Zucchini squash. I need to save my squash or else I know it will end up dying. I am considering using Beneficial Nematodes in my garden.

This is what I found out about them:

In a moist, dark environment Beneficial Nematodes (Steinernema feltiae) kill almost all pests. Therefore, they are ideally suited to combat insects in and on the soil and those that bore into wood, trees and shrubs. These microscopic, worm-like parasites actively hunt, penetrate and destroy over 230 different pests including fleas, fungus gnats, black vine weevils and white grubs. Naturally occurring, they are not harmful to people, pets, plants or earthworms and will continue working for 18 months. Apply anytime the soil is not frozen. Killing action begins 24 hours after application.

Has anyone here actually used this method of pest control?
If So, please share you knowledge! Thanks & Happy Gardening!
