Intraguild predation among biological-control agents: theory and evidence
The ability to develop successful programs of biological control will be enhanced by field studies that address the complexity of trophic interactions occurring in agroecosystems, and it is hypothesize that IGP by predators is particularly likely to influence the efficacy of Biological control.

Chapter VI – Techniques in insect nematology
This chapter focuses on the techniques used for identifying, isolating, propagating, assay, assaying, and preserving nematodes that are parasitic in or pathogenic to insects. Expand
Insect Pathogens as Biological Control Agents: Do They Have a Future?
Embedded entomopathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi, nematodes, and protozoa as inundatively applied microbial control agents can be effective and serve as alternatives to broad-spectrum chemical insecticides. Expand
Distribution of entomopathogenic nematodes (Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae) in natural habitats in California, USA
A total of 270 soil samples from 30 different habitats in 10 geographic regions of California were evaluated for the presence of rhabditid entomopathogenic nematodes, finding Steinernematids were recovered from coniferous forests, oak woodlands and grasslands whereas heterorhabditids were isolated from coastal marshes.

Additive and Synergistic Interaction between Entomopathogenic Nematodes andBacillus thuringiensisfor Scarab Grub Control
The additive or synergistic interaction between Btj and S. glaseri or H. bacteriophora may offer a powerful and reliable tool for scarab grub control. Expand
Entomopathogenic Nematodes In Biological Control
Entomopathogenic Nematodes as Biological Control Agents of Insects biological pest control using other organisms, like other biological control agents, nematodes are constrained by being living organisms that require specific constraints. Expand
