In vitro tests with concentrations of 0.1 and 0.01 ppm Ag+ ions and of 10.0, 1.0 and 0.1 ppm Cu++ ions on three species of nematode showed Pratylenchus penetrans to be the most susceptible to silver, and Xiphinema diversicaudatum the most susceptiblc to copper. Aphelenchoides ritzemabosi was the least affected by either metal. These results illustrate the potential dangers to living nematodes of water from metal-condenser stills and of the use of phosphor-bronze sieves in the final stages of extraction processes. The results of a pot-trial suggested that silver salts are of little value in the control of A. ritzemabosi in the field.
