Potential of entomopathogenic nematodes for biological control of selected pest insects infesting urban trees



Potential of entomopathogenic nematodes for biological control of selected pest insects infesting urban trees



Bulletin OILB/SROP 28(3): 3-7



The infectivity and biocontrol potential of Steinernema feltiae and Heterorhabditis megidis strains were evaluated against 12 species of the most common pest insects infesting urban trees.
