Insect pathogens as biological control agents: Back to the future.
Application technology and environmental considerations for use of entomopathogenic nematodes in biological control
Entomopathogenic nematode production and application technology.
This review provides a summary and analysis of factors that affect production and application of EPNs and offers insights for their future in biological insect suppression.
Application of Beddingia siricidicola for Sirex woodwasp control.
Nematodes as biocontrol agents
A Systems Approach to Conservation of Entomopathogenic Nematodes and Interactions with Agrochemicals and Other Biocontrol Agents is presented.
Factors affecting commercial success: case studies in cotton, turf and citrus.
Natural product diversity associated with the nematode symbionts Photorhabdus and Xenorhabdus
Comparative genomics and high-resolution mass spectrometry reveal the biosynthetic gene clusters, and vast chemical diversity of natural products that they encode, in Photorhabdus and XenorhabDus, bacteria that interact with hosts as symbionts and entomopathogens.
Microbial control of insect pests in temperate orchard systems: potential for incorporation into IPM.
Control of several orchard pest insects using MCAs, including viruses, Bacillus thuringiensis, fungi, and entomopathogenic nematodes, have been demonstrated in apple, pear, stone fruits, citrus, and several nut crops.
Compatibility and interactions with agrochemicals and other biocontrol agents.
Optimization of inoculation for in vivo production of entomopathogenic nematodes.
