The effectiveness of two entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) viz., Heterorhabditis indica strain NBAII-104 and Steinernema carpocapsae strain NBAII-04 against second instar grubs of L. lepidophora (Blanchard) under pot culture experiment. At a concentration of 450 IJs ml, H. indica recorded highest mortality (87.60%) at 15 DAT. While, S.carpocapsae recorded 54.05 per cent grub mortality at 450 IJs ml at 15 DAT. We concluded that the NBAII-104 strain of H. indica was most virulent against second… Expand

TLDR
The results of the present study clearly indicated that EPN, H. indica isolate DSM78 was found to be effective and a potential EPN isolate against all the three instars of white grub larvae under laboratory bioassays as well as in the field conditions. Expand

VULNERABILITY OF POTATO WHITE GRUB TO ENTOMOGENOUS FUNGI AND NEMATODES
TLDR
B. coriacea grubs had medium to low susceptibility to fungi, Metarrhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana in laboratory but under field condition, both these fungi didn’t provide satisfactory control of potato white grubs. Expand
Evaluation of the efficacy of the entomopathogenic nematodes Heterorhabditis sp. against sap beetles (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae)
TLDR
In containers filled with soil, moderate reduction in insect emergence was achieved when the nematodes were applied at concentrations of 25 and 50 IJs/cm2, however, the highest concentration treatment resulted in a drastic reduction in emergence of the beetles. Expand
Ecological considerations in the biological control of soil-inhabiting insects with entomopathogenic nematodes
TLDR
There is a compelling need for a standardized protocol that would permit cause and effect relationships to be established for successful and unsuccessful field trials of entomopathogenic nematodes, and the abiotic conditions optimal for survival and mobility are insufficiently understood. Expand
