Control fruit maggots biologically

Almost everyone who has an apple tree in the garden knows the annoyance of worm-eaten and inedible fruit. This is usually the result of infestation by codling moth larvae, also called fruit maggots.

How do nematodes work?

Nematodes are threadworms about 0.5 mm long, of which there are over 20,000 different species worldwide. The species Steinernema feltiae specializes, among other things, in controlling codling moth larvae and is particularly effective. The nematodes penetrate the fruit maggots and secrete a bacterium there, with which they live in symbiosis. The bacterium kills the pest and the nematodes multiply inside it until it is consumed. The nematodes then move on to infest the next pest. This process repeats until all pests are controlled.
