The assessment of the effect of entomopathogenic nematodes on bulb mites, pests of garlic and onion


Abstract: In the present study the screening of entomopathogenic nematodes in the fields of onion and garlic specialized farms in the Czech Republic and Israel was performed and more than thirty strains of Steinernema and Heterorhabditis nematodes were isolated. Selected strains were tested for infectivity and pathogenicity against garlic and onion pest mites (Rhizoglyphus) and the potential of the use of EPNs against bulb mites of the genus Rhizoglyphus was assessed.
