Nematodes and bacteria for insect control

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

An ongoing study at University of Arizona is searching habitats for nematodes that are potential insect pathogens. A native species for pest control trials in iceberg lettuce and citrus is being searched. Entomopathogenic nematodes are being employed to antagonize the citrus nematode and other plant-parasitic nematodes and to disrupt their life cycle and their infection into the citrus roots. Both commercially available nematode products and isolates of nematodes collected locally are being used.
