Biocontrol of the banana root borer weevil, Cosmopolites sordidus (Germar), with steinernematid nematodes



Biocontrol of the banana root borer weevil, Cosmopolites sordidus (Germar), with steinernematid nematodes



Journal of Agriculture of the University of Puerto Rico 74(1): 15-19



The entomophilic nematodes Neoaplectana carpocapsae, Steinernema glaseri and S. bibionis were evaluated as control agents for Cosmopolites sordidus, a pest of banana and plantain in Puerto Rico, in laboratory and greenhouse tests. In Petri dish tests, the 3 species caused high mortality of larvae at population densities of 400 and 40 000 nematodes.
