Abstract

The results of previous research on activity of entomopathogenic nematodes against harmful Thysanoptera species (particularly against Frankliniella occidentalis) and so far recorded entomophilic (parasitic) nematodes (Thripinema genus) in the body of thrips are presented in the paper. The most probably in the near future entomopathogenic nematodes will partly substitute the insecticides in controlling thrips and other plant pests. The investigation on the mode of action and the bionomics of entomophilic nematodes will be required to improve their activity in controlling thrips.
