Entomopathogenic nematodes for the biological control of pest insects



Entomopathogenic nematodes for the biological control of pest insects



Agriculturae Conspectus Scientificus Poljoprivredna Znanstvena Smotra 66(3): 179-185



Entomopathogenic nematodes are part of 9 families, but only some species of these families: Heterorhabditidae, Mermithidae and Steinernematidae kill insects. Infective juveniles enter the insect-host through the cuticle, or through the mouth, anus, etc., to reach the haemocoel. The infective juveniles also enter the insect by the foot. After that the nematodes leave the insect who usually dies.
