The codling moth (Cydia pomonella L.) is a serious pest of pome fruit. Diapausing cocooned larvae overwinter in cryptic habitats in the soil or in the bark of infested trees. The entomopathogenic nematode Steinernema feltiae (Filipjev) (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) is used to control diapausing codling moth larvae. The objective of this study was to define environmental conditions favouring the performance of the nematodes. Cocooned larvae were more susceptible than non-cocooned larvae… CONTINUE READING
