The susceptibility of larvae of the cabbage root fly (Delia radicum) to ten isolates of entomopathogenic nematodes was examined in a glasshouse experiment using cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis) as the host plant. Steinernema affine Horticulture Research International (HRI) code 179 provided the highest level of control, killing approximately 46% of the cabbage root fly within 28 days. Two Heterorhabditis isolates (HRI code K122 and UK211) and Steinernema E1 and F1 (HRI code 194 and GWE63) did not give any significant control. In a second experiment, S. affine was applied against cabbage root fly larvae at 8000 to 64 000 nematodes per pot, and its performance was compared to identical dose applications of Nemasys®, a commercial formulation of S. feltiae. Averaged over the four dose rates, S. affine controlled significantly more cabbage root fly (36%) than Nemasys® (10.4%).
