Abstract

Entomopathogenic Nematodes offer impressive attributes as biological control agents. Consequently, nematodes are commercially produced on four continents and are being successfully applied, mainly against soil-inhabiting pests. However, the intolerance of the EPN infective stages to desiccation, temperature extremes and solar radiation reduces their field efficacy.
