Effect of some abiotical factors on the pathogenicity of entomogenous nematodes placed together with their host on the soil surface



Effect of some abiotical factors on the pathogenicity of entomogenous nematodes placed together with their host on the soil surface



Zeszyty Naukowe Akademii Rolniczej im Hugona Koataja w Krakowie, Ogrodnictwo ( 20): 113-129



Pathogenicity of invasive larvae of Steinernema feltiae and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora placed together with wax moth caterpillars (Galleria mellonella) on the soil surface of different texture, pH, moisture, temperature and depth was studied in laboratory experiments. No significant differences between the influence of different soil texture on the pathogenicity of this nematode were found. Pathogenicity of both species was higher in 20% moisture of the soil than in lower soil moisture.
