Abstract

Significance, mode of action and developmental cycle of entomopathogenic nematodes, which are important natural enemies of soil and foliar pests around the world, are presented. Special emphasis is given to previous use of entomopathogenic nematodes against foliar pests of vegetable Brassicas, such as Delia radicum, Plutella xylostella, Pieris brassicae, Mamestra brassicae and Phyllotreta spp. Foliar application of nematodes with the aim of their faster and more efficient activity against target organisms is also described.
