Field assay using a native entomopathogenic nematode for biological control of the weevil Phyrdenus muriceus in organic eggplant crops in Argentina
TLDR
The present study is the first assessment of EPNs against P. muriceus under field conditions, and the first report of their use in the humid Pampa, one of the major agricultural areas of Argentina. Expand
Susceptibility of Chironomus plumosus larvae (Diptera: Chironomidae) to entomopathogenic nematodes (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae): Potential for control
TLDR
It is demonstrated that several EPN species could be developed as a valid form of biocontrol for Chironomidae, and shown that following application to the water column, EPNs sink to the bottom of the lentic water body and can remain alive for more than 96 h. Expand
Susceptibility of cockroaches (Gromphadorhina portentosa, Nauphoeta cinerea and Blaptica dubia) exposed to entomopathogenic nematodes
TLDR
It is found that S. kraussei was harmless to all three cockroach species but B. dubia was killed when exposed to Heterorhabditis spp. Expand
Efficacy of entomopathogens against Thaumatotibia leucotreta under laboratory conditions
False codling moth (FCM), Thaumatotibia leucotreta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), is a priority pest on citrus, stone fruit, and table grapes. Current control focuses on the adult stage;Expand
Overview and future research needs for development of effective biocontrol strategies for management of Bactrocera dorsalis Hendel (Diptera: Tephritidae) in sub-Saharan Africa.
TLDR
Prevalence of native and invasive fruit flies in orchards will require that a combination of BCAs is included in integrated pest management (IPM) programmes, and future research into combining parasitoids, EPFs and entomopathogenic nematodes in addition to conservation of predatory ants in IPM plans may improve effectiveness of currently used strategies for management of fruit-infesting tephritids.

Pathogenicity of Pakistani isolates of Steinernema bifurcatum and S. affine (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) in management of stored grain pests Lasioderma serricorne and Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Ptinidae, Tenebrionidae)
Background Stored grain products suffer a considerable economic loss due to insect infestations. The resistance of pests to insecticide, and residues on crops are produced by the application ofExpand
Activity of Steinernema colombiense in plant-based oils
TLDR
Findings indicate that the plant-based oil mixtures maintain viable EPN infective juveniles at moderate temperatures and up to 7 to 14 days, and can be used in single EPN mixtures or combined with EPF. Expand
Characterization of the phenotypic and genotypic tolerance to abiotic stresses of natural populations of Heterorhabditis bacteriophora
TLDR
The obtained data lays the groundwork for future studies aimed at identifying genes and molecular markers as genetic selection tools for enhancement of entomopathogenic nematodes ability to withstand environmental stress conditions. Expand
Engineering bacterial symbionts of nematodes improves their biocontrol potential to counter the western corn rootworm
TLDR
It is reported that experimental evolution and selection for bacterial symbionts that are resistant to benzoxazinoids improve the ability of a nematode–symbiont pair to kill WCR larvae. Expand

Entomopathogenic nematodes
TLDR
This project uses much less molecular analysis than previous projects, instead relying on some powerful new neurophysiological methods, such as multi-electrode array (MEA) recording and dynamic clamp as well as classical intracellular microelectrophysiology, a technique I first learned when I was still working on my PhD project in Hungary. Expand
Entomopathogenic nematodes as a model system for advancing the frontiers of ecology.
TLDR
Some recent advances in phylogeny, systematics, biogeography, community ecology and population dynamics models of EPNs are summarized, and how this research is advancing frontiers in ecology is described. Expand
The Entomopathogenic Bacterial Endosymbionts Xenorhabdus and Photorhabdus: Convergent Lifestyles from Divergent Genomes
TLDR
Findings indicate that evolutionary changes shaped by symbiotic interactions can follow different routes to achieve similar end points. Expand
Effect of temperature on the development of Steinernema carpocapsae and Steinernema feltiae (Nematoda: Rhabditida) in liquid culture
TLDR
This study determined optimal temperatures to obtain high DJ progeny within a short process time and found S. carpocapsae was more sensible to suboptimal temperature than S. feltiae, which reduced DJ infectivity and total DJ density and DJ proportion of the total nematode population were more variable at non-optimal temperatures.
