Biology and Management of Squash Vine Borer ( Lepidoptera : Sesiidae )
Squash vine borer, Melittia cucurbitae (Harris) (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae), is a species of clearwing moth native to North and South America which is a pest on members of the cucurbit family during itsExpand
Field Efficacy of Steinernema sp. (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) on the Colorado Potato Beetle Overwintering Generation
It is indicated that EPNs have great potential in controlling overwintering CPB generations to reduce first generation abundance and damage, and also to prevent the spread of new generations to surrounding potato growing areas. Expand
Pest management of cucurbits
The organic and inorganic system proved to be the most effective and economical approach against cucurbits aphid (Aphis gossypii), leaf eating caterpillar (Diaphania indica), hadda beetle (Epilachna vigintiopunctata) and cucurbit fruit fly (Bactrocera cucurbitsae). Expand
Advancing Biological Control of the Wheat Stem Sawfly: New Strategies in a 100-yr Struggle to Manage a Costly Pest in the Northern Great Plains
This work presents the most current research regarding the use of these biologicals against WSS, and discusses new strategies and research opportunities for improving their effectiveness for managing this persistent pest. Expand

Developing Integrated Pest Management Tactics for Squash Vine Borer
The Squash Vine Borer is described as a “spatially aggregating force” that “reinforces the earth’s ability to regenerate itself” through contact with the soil. Expand
Entomopathogenic Nematodes Combined with Adjuvants Presents a New Potential Biological Control Method for Managing the Wheat Stem Sawfly, Cephus cinctus (Hymenoptera: Cephidae)
Results indicate a novel control method for WSS, and represent a significant advancement in the biological control of this persistent insect pest. Expand
Virulence of new South Carolinian heterorhabditid isolates (Rhabditida: Heterorhabditidae) to the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua
The virulence of new nine heterorhabditid isolates from South Carolina against the beet armyworm was compared with two known heterorhungditid nematodes under laboratory conditions to evaluate the susceptibility of the Spodoptera exigua larvae to the heterorhakditids at concentrations of 10, 25, 50, and 100 infective juveniles per larva.

Comparison of efficacy of nine new heterorhabditid isolates (Rhabditida: Heterorhabditidae) in Tenebrio molitor (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
The virulence of new nine heterorhabditid isolates from South Carolina, including H. megidis LEX, may be considered first to be studied further as potential biocontrol agents of insects. Expand
Heterorhabdit Nematodların (Rhabditida: Heterorhabditidae) Biyolojik Etkinliklerinin Galleria mellonella L. (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) Üzerinde Karşılaştırılması
The virulence of nine local heterorhabditid isolates obtained in a survey in South Carolina (USA) and compared against last instar greater wax moth larvae were compared under laboratory conditions, finding megidis LEX strains found promising in biological control. Expand
