Survival of entomopathogenic nematodes in oil emulsions and control effectiveness on adult engorged ticks (Acari: Ixodida)

their interaction with the insect-pest. Hence, in an effort to increase the survival time and infectivity of EPNs on ticks, this study aimed to evaluate: (i) the effect of five vegetable oil emulsions on the survival and infectivity of S. carpocapsae, S. websteri and H. bacteriophora on ticks in laboratory and (ii) the control effectiveness (CE) of application of EPNs in oil emulsion on ticks present in infested dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) in field conditions.

Infected host responses across entomopathogenic nematode phylogeny

) that describes three clades within the genus Heterorhabditis (Fig. 1). We chose at least one species from each Heterorhabditis clade, two from the clade containing H. bacteriophora, and a single Steinernema species (S. feltiae). We assessed the responsiveness of five species to their own macerate, and then tested the responses of all five species to H. bacteriophora-derived macerate in a common experiment. We hypothesized that responsiveness to host cues would be conserved, while species-specific

Intraspecific virulence of entomopathogenic nematodes against the pests Frankliniella occidentalis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) and Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)

D. balteata, the infectivity varied for the sequestering D. virgifera virgifera. Also, they detected some intraspecific variability in the impact of the benzoxazinoids on the infectivity of H. bacteriophora populations, although most of them were resistant. Finally, a recent study by Levy et al. (2020) revealed intraspecific variability on the tolerance to heat and desiccation. By using several bioassays, Levy et al. (2020) defined which populations performed better under stressing conditions

The impact of chemical nematicides on entomopathogenic nematode survival and infectivity

EPN species like H. bacteriophora and S. carpocapsae (Browning et al., 2004; Glazer et al., 1997; Hara and Kaya, 1982; Rovesti et al., 1988, Rovesti and Deseo, 1990). These studies mostly aimed to assess the compatibility of these compounds with EPNs based on the survival and infectivity of IJs. There, however, is a need to expand on the diversity of nematicides that are tested for impact on EPN, and their effects on the penetration efficacy and reproductive capacity; chemotaxis and longer-term

In the second virulence experiment, four EPN species [H. bacteriophora (VS strain), H. floridensis (K22 strain), S. carpocapsae (All strain), and S. rarum (17C&E)] with high virulence to MEAM1 nymphs were selected based on the outcome of the first virulence experiment above. The virulence to MEAM1 third instar nymphs was assessed on snap bean and tomato leaves. The first evaluation was conducted three times (3 trials over time

Heterorhabditis bacteriphora was 100% conspecific to a number of H. bacteriophora isolates in NCBI (MK072810.1, MK421482.1, MG551676.1, KT378450.1, KT378448). Discussion The purpose of this survey was to see if EPNs were present in the Golden Triangle area of Montana, and if so, to explore the patterns of their

cups and placing them in the incubator, we observed the cups daily for adult emergence until 30 days post treatment application. Adults that successfully emerged were considered to have survived the nematode treatment. All other experimental parameters were the same as described above except we used 10 pupae per replicate (based on the availability of insects). Pot bioassay Five nematode species, S. riobrave, S. carpocapsae, S. feltiae, H. indica, and H. bacteriophora were selected for the pot

Are Entomopathogenic Nematodes Effective Biological Control Agents Against the Carob Moth, Ectomyelois ceratoniae?

, H. bacteriophora demonstrated low virulence on the pest larvae in petri tests with a LC50 = 426.92 IJ/larva. Hence, both Steinernema species were selected for subsequent experiments. The penetration rate for S. feltiae and S. carpocapsae into the hemocoel of the pest was 43% and 31%, respectively, and the corresponding reproduction rate was 15,452 IJ/larva for S. feltiae and 18,456 IJ/larva for S. carpocapsae. The gathered data from those in vitro tests were used for a field assay
