Biological control of Lycoriella mali (Diptera: Sciaridae), a pest of oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus using entomopathogenic nematodes



Biological control of Lycoriella mali (Diptera: Sciaridae), a pest of oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus using entomopathogenic nematodes



Korean Journal of Applied Entomology 40(1): 59-67



The potential of entomophilic nematodes Steinernema carpocapsae Pocheon strain and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora Hamyang strain and biological control agents of the mushroom fly L. mali infesting P. ostreatus was evaluated in the laboratory and in the field. S. carpocapsae was more effective than H. bacteriophora in controlling the pest. Mortality of L. mali was higher at 25 degrees C than at 20 degrees C. The third and fourth instars of L. mali were more susceptible than the second instar.
