Entomopathogenic nematodes and insect parasitoids can work together to kill insect pests by Ganpati Jagdale

In a laboratory study, recently it has been demonstrated that the combined application of an entomopathogenic nematode,  Heterorhabditis indica and an insect parasitoid, Habrobracon hebetor can enhance the mortality of Indianmeal moth, Plodia interpunctella.
