DescriptionEntomopathogenic nematodes were screened for efficacy against the cottonwood borer, Plectrodera scalator (Fabricius). Steinernema feltiae SN and S. carpocapsae All killed 58 and 50% of larvae, respectively, in Wlter paper bioassays but less than 10% in diet cup bioassays. S. glaseri NJ, S. riobrave TX, and H. indica MG-13 killed less than 10% of larvae in both assays. H. marelata IN was ineVective in the diet cup bioassay and killed 12.9% of larvae in a Wlter paper bioassay. The nematode isolates we tested are not suitable for use as biological control agents against P. scalator.
