Entomopathogenic nematodes as possible control agents of the banana root borer weevil Cosmopolites sordidus (Germar) 1824 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Entomopathogenic nematodes as possible control agents of the banana root borer weevil Cosmopolites sordidus (Germar) 1824 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)



Boletin de Entomologia Venezolana, Serie Monografias 13(2): 123-140



A survey of entomopathogenic nematodes found in Aragua and Miranda States (Venezuela) was carried out, and their potential as biological control agents of C. sordidus evaluated. Foreign strains, including Heterorhabditis bacteriophora (FRG-1 and HT1), H. indicus (FRG-09 and FRG-15), Steinernema bibionis and S. carpocapsae, and the Venezuelan Heterorhabditis spp. strains HV1, HV2, HV3, HV4, HV5 and HV6, were compared.
