Simple new methods are described for rearing species of Neoaplectana and Heterorhabditis monoxenically and cheaply in large quantities for use in biological control. Yields of more than half a million nematodes/g of an homogenate of pig kidney/fat on crumbed polyether polyurethane sponge in conical flasks were obtained consistently for some species. The method lends itself to industrial development.
