An Assessment of the Effects of Insect Host Condition on Entomopathogenic Nematodes and Their Symbiotic Bacteria
This is the first record of the effect of insect host condition on both EPN and their symbiotic bacteria, and bacterial symbiont fitness were unaffected by Insect host condition.
The use of entomopathogenic nematodes in the control of stored-product insects
Entomopathogenic nematodes have still to overcome substantial hurdles to become a reliable alternative for commercial applications in warehouses and storage facilities, however, the use of innovative, enhanced methods of formulation and application, such as encapsulation or bait traps, could boost the exploitation of entomopathogens in storage facilities against post-harvest insects.
Entomopathogenic Nematodes in the Soil Environment: Distributions, Interactions and the Influence of Biotic and Abiotic Factors
Some aspects of the distribution of EPNs in the soil environment, what the authors know about their interactions, and the various biotic and abiotic factors that influence them are reviewed.
Ecological aspects of an isolate of Steinernema diaprepesi (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) from Argentina
The efficacy of this isolate was found to be favoured in sandy soils, regardless of the soil water potential, and the nematode showed high virulence to lepidopteran larvae, being limited or nil in the remaining orders of arthropods evaluated.
Entomopathogenic Nematodes as Biopesticides
Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) are microbial control agents which have become important in biological control or integrated pest management of insect pests as biopesticides. EPNs are widespread
Infectivity of Steinernema carpocapsae and S. feltiae to Larvae and Adults of the Hazelnut Weevil, Curculio nucum: Differential Virulence and Entry Routes.
The differential susceptibility of hazelnut weevil larvae and adults to S. carpocapsae B14 and S. feltiae D114 primarily reflected differences in the ability of these two nematodes to penetrate the host.
