Using Galleria traps, the number of infective larvae of Neoaplectana carpocapsae in soil samples was estimated. Sterile soil samples, in Galleria traps, were inoculated with different concentrations of infective larvae, from 10 to 5 × 105, and the concentration was related to the percentage of dead larvae of Galleria mellonella and the rate of mortality. The results suggest that using our method, an estimate can be made of the number of infective larvae in soil samples.
