The susceptibility of different species of sciarid flies to entomopathogenic nematodes.
Steinernema feltiae is the most effective nematode for controlling sciarid species but S. carpocapsae does exert some control. S. feltiae is less effective at 30 degrees C than at 22 degrees C. S.Expand

A Neoaplectanid nematode in the larch sawfly Cephalcia lariciphila (Hymenoptera: Pamphiliidae)
SUMMARY A nematode parasitic on prepupae of larch sawfly (Cephalcia lariciphila) appears to be indistinguishable from Neoaplectana carpocapsae. Of three temperatures tested the optimum forExpand

Progeny production of Steinernema abbasi in lepidopterous larvae
Progeny production of a new entomopathogenic nematode Steinernema abbasi in various lepidopterous prepupae was investigated. Most dauer juveniles (DJs) developed in the greater wax moth, GalleriaExpand
