PACIFIC NORTHWEST NURSERY IPM
Entomopathogenic or beneficial nematodes have been used quite successfully for insect management. In Pacific Northwest nursery production they are used primary for suppression of root weevil and fungus gnat larvae. There are several useful sites with information about using nematodes for insect management.
An updated resource Pacific Northwest Extension Publication, PNW 544, Using Entomopathogenic Nematodes for Crop Insect Pest Control is nice place to start learning about use of nematodes for pest control. The authors are Carol Miles, Caitlin Blethen, Randy Gaugler, David Shapiro-Ilan, Todd Murray. Revised May 2012.
The most resource-packed website concerning the use
of entomopathogenic or beneficial nematodes is that of Ohio State
We held a very hands-on workshop in Oregon
that has practical information particulary concerning application techniques
This work concerns strawberries but can be useful understanding
field applications for root weevil control. Please note the importance
of debris removal
