  • Field trials were conducted in Rheola Forest, Wales, Great Britain, to determine the effectiveness of Steinernema feltiae UK strain in controlling the web-spinning larch sawfly Cephalcia lariciphila. Foliar sprays at the rate of 5,000-20,000 nematodes/100 cm branch resulted in 3.4-29.4% infection of sawfly larvae. Soil application of 200 nematodes/cm(2) resulted in 61% infection of sawfly prepupae and 17.3% of pupae. Prepupal infection ranged from 4.8 to 14.7% 1 year after nematode application… CONTINUE READING
