Biological control of codling moth, Cydia pomonella with entomopathogenic nematodes / by Ganpati Jagdale

It has been demonstrated that the Entomopathogenic nematodes including Steinernema carpocapsae and Steinernema feltiae have a potential to use as effective biological control agent against diapausing cocooned codling moth, Cydia pomonella larvae in miniature fruit bins.
