Download Nematodes and the Biological Control of Insect Pests

Insect nematology is emerging as a major discipline within insect pathology and biological control. Interest in insect nematology can be attributed to (1) the successful use of nematodes in biological control of insect pests, (2) the ready availability of some nematode species for classical biological control, integrated pest management (IPM) and inundative or inoculative release programmes Cited by: As an alternative, the uses of entomopathogenic nematodes are increasing as a suitable biological control agent against insect pests of economically valuable crops (Gaugler, ).

Although these alternatives are being continually improved, most insect pests are nonetheless still controlled with chemical insecticides.

Biological control is a technique of controlling pests, that is, mites, insects, weeds, and plant diseases by using other microorganisms. Biopesticide is used for the modification of development of insect and behavior exerts unique approach for management of insect : Talha Nazir, Sehroon Khan, Dewen Qiu.

The insect-parasitic (entomopathogenic or insecticidal) nematodes, Steinernema and Heterorhabditis, infect soil-dwelling insects and occur naturally or can be purchased.

As with all biological control agents, it is especially important to match the correct microbial control agent with the correct pest in order for them to be effective. Figure 4. Entomopathogens have been used extensively to control insect pests in forests with successful use of both augmentation and classical biological control strategies to apply or introduce bacteria, baculoviruses, fungi, and nematodes.

In particular, Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki has been used to effectively control numerous defoliators in. Get this from a library. Nematodes and the biological control of insect pests.

Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) from the families Heterorhabditidae and Steinernematidae are soil-inhabiting organisms that are obligate insect parasites in nature (Kaya and Gaugler, ).These nematodes have evolved a mutualistic association with bacteria in the genera Xenorhabdus and habdus is associated with Heterorhabditis spp.

It covers the use of three main types of nematodes: entomopathogenic nematodes, entomophilic nematodes and slug-parasitic nematodes.

The biology, commercial production, formulation and quality control, application technology, strategy and safety of each of these three 2/5(2). Book Descriptions: Insect pests are largely controlled by toxic chemical pesticides which cause environmental, health and resistance problems.

Consequently, alternative methods of control are being sought and adopted. Insect parasitic and insect killing nematodes provide some of the most promising new alternatives to chemical insecticides.

Description This volume summarises current developments in integrated pest management (IPM), focussing on insect pests. Chapters discuss advances in understanding species and landscape ecology on which IPM is founded. The book then reviews advances in cultural, physical and, in particular, biological methods of control.

Topics include developments in classical, conservation and. The nematodes (UK: / ˈ n ɛ m ə t oʊ d z / NEM-ə-tohdz, US: / ˈ n iː m-/ NEEM-Greek: Νεματώδα; Latin: Nematóda) or roundworms constitute the phylum Nematoda (also called Nemathelminthes), with plant-parasitic nematodes being known as are a diverse animal phylum inhabiting a broad range of environments.

Taxonomically, they are classified along with insects and other Clade: Nematoida. Use our beneficial insects for natural pest control, integrated pest management (IPM) and pollination. A variety of feeder insects are also available as food or dietary supplements for lizards, birds and other exotic pets.

The book also examines the application of nematodes in different cropping systems, and the efficacy of nematodes against specific pests. The potential of predatory nematodes to control plant-parasitic nematodes and mycophagous nematodes to control fungal pathogens is also reviewed.

Biological control management has been found as an emerging key of success, and in this context, entomopathogenic nematodes are in concern as potential biological control agents. These nematodes parasitize and enter the body of insect host and kill them quickly without the development of any resistance and : Istkhar, Ashok Kumar Chaubey, Amar Prakash Garg.
