The survival of Aphelenchoides ritzemabosi in soil and leaves was studied at four chrysanthemum nurseries and in the laboratory. No nematodes were recovered from nursery soils after the 4th April. In wet soil inoculated with eelworms or infested leaves the eelworms died rapidly and none was recovered after 17 weeks except in frozen soil at - 5° C when 0.3% were alive after 15 months. In dry soil kept at 5° C, 10% were recovered after 15 months. Higher temperatures (18° and 25° C) reduced survival time. Chrysanthemum eelworms in dried leaves kept at 25° C died within 2 years but at 4° C and 7° C, 33% and 8% respectively were alive after 3 years when all active stages were recovered.
