Galleria-baiting technique

Occurrence of entomopathogenic nematode Steinernema feltiae in Slovenia by Ganpati Jagdale

Presence of an entomopathogenic nematode, Steinernema feltiae (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) was recorded for first time in soil samples collected from grasslands and field crops in central part of Slovenia. Nematodes were isolated using Galleria-baiting technique (Bedding and Akhurst, 1975) and identified using molecular technique. Read following literature for more information

A new record of entomopathogenic nematode, Heterorhabditis megidis from Turkey by Ganpati Jagdale

Presence of entomopathogenic nematode, Heterorhabditis megidis have been reported for the first time in the soil samples collected form Eastern Black Sea region of Turkey.  Nematodes were isolated using Galleria-baiting technique (Bedding and Akhurst, 1975) and identified using classical morphological (Poinar et al. 1987) and molecular techniques (Yilmaz et al., 2009)
