Temperature limitations to the activity of a strain of H. heliothidis were studied using G. mellonella as a host in a temperature gradient incubator. The maximum temperature at which host death was caused by the nematode was 32.3°C and the minimum 11-12°C. The optimum temperature for activity was approximately 28°C. The results are discussed in relation to Northern Ireland conditions and it is concluded that the strain of H. heliothidis studied is not a good candidate for outdoor use but has potential within a controlled environment.
