Susceptibility of western flower thrips to different entomopathogenic nematode species



Susceptibility of western flower thrips to different entomopathogenic nematode species



Folia Entomologica Hungarica 57(SUPPL ): 27-32



Susceptibility of the prepupal and pupal stages of the western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis, (WFT) to five species or strains of the entomopathogenic nematodes of the families Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae: Steinernema riobravis, S. feltiae, strains Ger. and UK, Heterorhabditis bacteriophora, strains HP88 and IS5 were tested in the laboratory. Although all tested nematodes controlled WFT, there were differences among their efficiency. The heterorabditid nematode H. bacteriophora, strain HP88 showed a high virulence to the soil inhabiting WFT stages. The steinernematid nematodes S. riobravis and S. feltiae, strain Ger. and UK demonstrated only a slight effect on prepupal and pupal populations of WFT, whereas H. bacteriophora, strain IS5 was the least virulent of all. A possible reason for such species variation is herein suggested and discussed.
