Research interests

Research of this laboratory is the use of insect parasitic nematodes as biological pesticides. A specialised infective juvenile transmits many nematode parasites from host to host. We are interested in the survival and infection strategies of these infective juveniles. Our research is the development and utilisation of insect parasitic nematodes as biological control agents. Most of the entomopathogenic nematode species have a wide host range in the laboratory conditions, but the success rate of the nematodes decreases in the field. Therefore, we focus on various application strategies to increase nematode efficiency in the field conditions.
