A new strain of Steinernema carpocapsae (Weiser, 1955) was isolated from soil collected in a lagoon plain in Veneto region (North-East Italy). This new strain was named ItS-CAO1.

Though we edit our accounts for accuracy, we cannot guarantee all information in those accounts.Steinernema Carpocapsae nematodes (SC) is most effective against flea larvae, ticks, ants, and caterpillars in lawns, garden soil, and under trees where larvae pupate. S. carpocapsae tends to be most effective when applied against highly mobile surface-adapted insects.

Entomopathogenic nematode, species Steinernema carpocapsae Infective juveniles of a threadworm that parasitises a large variety of insect prey, especially beetles, fleas, cutworms (Agrotis spp.), and other moths. 100% safe to humans and pets.
Steinernema glaseri: One of the largest entomopathogenic nematode species at twice the length but eight times the volume of S. carpocapsae infective juveniles, S. glaseri is especially effective against coleopterous larvae, particularly scarabs. This species is a cruise forager, neither nictating nor attaching well to passing hosts, but highly mobile and responsive to long-range host volatiles.
Entomopathogenic nematodes have been proposed as biological agents for the control of Drosophila suzukii, an invasive pest of small-stone and soft-skinned fruits. Larvae of the fly are susceptible to Steinernema carpocapsae infection but the reaction of immune defenses of the host are unknown. To determine the immune response, larvae were infected with S. carpocapsae and Xenorhabdus.
Ambushers such as Steinernema carpocapsae have an energy-conserving approach and lie-in-wait to attack mobile insects (nictitating) in the upper soil. Cruisers like Steinernema glaseri and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora are highly active and generally subterranean, moving significant distances using volatile cues and other methods to find their host underground.

Steinernema is a genus of nematodes in the family of Steinernematidae. The genus Steinernema is named after the nematologist Gotthold Steiner. Species of this genus can infect insects.

GENERAL INFORMATION for Steinernema feltiae Description: Soil inhabiting nematodes that are lethal insect parasitoids that are used to control soil pests Example pests controlled: Fungus gnat larvae.
Experiments were conducted in Germany in 2002 under laboratory, semi-field and field conditions to evaluate the insecticidal activities of Steinernema bicornutum, S. carpocapsae, S. carpocapsae strain China, S. feltiae and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora against R. cerasi. The nematodes at 50, 100 or 150 nematodes per larva and pupa were released to cell wells (24 cells filled with quartz sand).
Classification of the predicted proteins revealed involvement in diverse cellular, metabolic and extracellular functions. One hundred and nineteen clusters were predicted to encode putative secreted proteins such as proteases, proteases inhibitors, lectins, saposin-like proteins, acetylcholinesterase, anti-oxidants, and heat-shock proteins, which can possibly have host interactions.
Damage caused to entomopathogenic nematodes by spray application is generally assessed by observing the viability of the infective juveniles under the microscope. To improve the quality and speed of this observation we developed an image processing technique and tested the efficacy of acetic acid and sodium chloride as chemical stimulants.
The relationship between the bacterium Xenorhabdus nematophila and its nematode host, Steinernema carpocapsae, is classified as cooperation because both organisms benefit and X. nematophila and S. carpocapsae can be grown separately.
Studies on the toxicity of pesticides to Steinernema feltiae (Neoaplectana carpocapsae), Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana are summarized. Bentazone, ioxynil, hexaconazole, cyromazine and buprofezin did not affect N. feltiae, but quizalofop-ethyl, tralkoxydim, sulfur and potassium soap were toxic. Pirimicarb, cypermethrin, diazinon, simazine and metalaxyl plus mancozeb did not.
