Infective juveniles (J3) of the entomogenous nematodes Steinernema feltiae DD-136 (ca. 10,000 J3/100 ml) and S. glaseri (ca. 2,500 J3/100 ml) were incubated in steam-sterilized and nonsterilized sandy soil and bark compost for 8 weeks at 25 C. The nematodes were recovered by a two-step extraction procedure at 1-week intervals, and their infectivity to lepidopterous larvae (Spodoptera litura and Galleria mellonella) and their effect on the population and community of native nematodes in soil…

Dynamics of the Entomogenous Nematode Steinernema feltiae Applied to Soil with and without Nematicide Treatment.
TLDR
DD-136 in chemically treated soil not only effectively attacked the invading soil insect pests but also suppressed the recovery of plant nematodes, which increased native rhabditids and decreased plant-parasitic nem atodes.
Effect of Temperature on Nematode (Steinernema feltiae [Nematoda: Steinernematidae]) Treatment of Soil for Control of Lesser Mealworm (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) in Turkey Houses
TLDR
High temperatures coincided with the loss of beetle con- trol and declining nematode presence in treated soil and the effect of temperature on nema- tode persistence intreated soil in the laboratory was examined.
Effectiveness of the Entomopathogenic Nematodes Heterorhabditis bacteriophora and Steinernema feltiae against Tenebrio molitor (Yellow Mealworm) Larvae in Different Soil Types at Different Temperatures
The efficiency of the entomopathogenic nematodes Steinernema feltiae Tur-S3 and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora Tur- H2, isolated in Turkey, against larvae of Tenebrio molitor L. was investigated in
Effect of entomopathogenic nematodes and their mutualistic bacteria to control of root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne javanica) on tomato in the greenhouses.
TLDR
In this study, the effects of four entomopathogenic nematode species and the supernatants of their symbiotic bacteria were evaluated on eggs and second stage juveniles of root-knot nematodes on tomato plants grown in the greenhouse.
Effects of Soil Type on Virulence and Persistence of Entomopathogenic Nematodes in Relation to Control of Diaprepes abbreviatus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
Both nematode species exhibited greater virulence and persistence in Marl soil compared with sandy soils, and the cause of these trends and the applicability of these findings under different water tensions and under field conditions is required.
Evaluation of entomopathogenic nematodes and the supernatants of the in vitro culture medium of their mutualistic bacteria for the control of the root-knot nematodes Meloidogyne incognita and M. arenaria.
TLDR
Among the treatments tested, the plant-dipping method of X. bovienii into bacterial culture fluid may be the most practical and effective method for M. incognita and M. arenaria control.
Comparative Assessment of biological (Nematoda: Steinernema feltiae) and chemical methods of control for the mushroom fly Lycoriella auripila (Diptera: Sciaridae)
TLDR
An indigenous isolate of the insect‐parasitic nematode Steinemema feltiae was tested as a biological control agent and its effects compared with two commonly used insecticides, diazinon and diflubenzuron found to affect their efficacy.
Effects of low storage temperature on survival and infectivity of two Steinernerna species (Nematoda : Steinernematidae)
TLDR
It appears that storage at 5 "C induces most of the nematodes into a state in which they lose their ability to parasitise a host, which may affect virulence of the parasites and the period of storage may be critical.
Augmenting Entomopathogenic Nematodes in Soil from a Florida CitrusOrchard: Non-Target Effects of a Trophic Cascade.
TLDR
The experiments suggest that non-target effects of augmenting the EPN community in soil vary among EPN species and have the potential to temporarily reduce EPN numbers below the natural equilibrium density.
Comparison of Three Methods for Estimating the Number of Entomopathogenic Nematodes Present in Soil Samples 1
Numbers of Steinernema sp. (CB2B) and S. carpocapsae (Agriotos) exponentially declined after application into a clay loam soil. Over a 35-day sampling period, Steinernema sp. (CB2B) was more

Use of a nematode, Heterorhabditis heliothidis, to control black vine weevil, Otiorhynchus sulcatus, in potted plants
SUMMARY Application of aqueous suspensions of infective juvenile Heterorhabditis heliothidis, isolate T327, to the soil resulted in up to 100% parasitisation of larvae of the black vine weevil,
Dispersal and Infectivity of the Entomogenous Nematode, Neoaplectana carpocapsae Weiser (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae), in Sand.
TLDR
Testing of the lateral and vertical dispersal patterns of Neoaplectana carpocapsae in sand indicated that the nematodes were capable of infecting 90, 35, and 5% of the G. mellonella pupae at 7 cm, 10 cm, and 14 cm from the point of placement, respectively.
Preliminary evaluations of parasitic nematodes for grass grub (Costelytra zealandica (White)) control in central Hawke's Bay of New Zealand
TLDR
The mortality — nematode response curve appeared to vary from asymptotic to curvilinear, with mortality declining at the highest rate (100 × 104/m2), with the possible reason for the latter relationship discussed.
Biological control potential of neoaplectanid nematodes.
TLDR
The neoaplectanids are among the most studied of all entomogenous nematodes because they are regarded as having excellent potential as biological control agents and the broad host range and high virulence make them attractive candidates for industrial development.
Susceptibility of Various Species of Lepidopterous Pupae to the Entomogenous Nematode Neoaplectana carpocapsae.
TLDR
The susceptibility of certain species of lepidopterous pupae occurring in different ecological situations to the entomogenous nematode, Neoaplectana carpocapae, was tested and some insect species that pupate above ground were highly susceptible to N. carpocapsae infection.
