Differential susceptibility of subterranean termite castes to entomopathogenic nematodes


Differential susceptibility of subterranean termite castes to entomopathogenic nematodes



Biocontrol Science and Technology 15(4): 367-377

We examined the attachment and infectivity of two entomopathogenic nematode species, Steinernema carpocapsae and Heterorhabditis indica, on soldiers and workers in two subterranean termite species, Coptotermes formosanus and C. vastator. In attachment tests with S. carpocapsae, more nematodes attached to soldiers of C. formosanus and C. vastator in the absence of workers compared to soldiers that were in the presence of workers.
