Evaluating the potential of the entomopathogenic nematode Heterorhabditis bacteriophora ‘Oswego’ to persist in soils and soil mixes used in the nursery production of woody ornamentals
Shields, Elson; Testa, Tony
Black vine weevil, Otiorhynchus sulcatis, is a very serious insect pest of woody ornamentals nationwide requiring frequent applications of insecticide to reduce adult populations in an effort to reduce larval feeding and minimize plant death. Black vine weevil is a serious economic pest in commercial plantings, residential plantings, and nursery production (both containerized and field).
