Entonem can be used for biological control of various insect pests in protected crops and urban green.

It is effective at low temperatures, thus can also be applied in colder parts of the season.


  • Fly larvae (Diptera): Sciarid flies (Lycoriella spp., Bradysia spp.); Shore flies (Scatella spp.); Leaf miners (Liriomyza spp.)
  • Thrips (Thysanoptera) pupae and larvae: a.o. Western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis)
  • Weevil larvae (Coleoptera): Black vine weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus); Other weevils (Otiorhynchus spp.)
  • Caterpillars (Lepidoptera): Tomato leaf miner moth (Tuta absoluta); Oak processionary moth (Thaumetopoea processionea); Common swift moth (Korscheltellus lupulina); Noctuidae: Armyworms (Spodoptera spp.); Cotton bollworm (Spodoptera littoralis); Corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea); Tomato looper (Chrysodeixis chalcites); cutworms (Agrotis spp.); Silver-Y moth (Autographa gamma)
  • Bugs (Hemiptera): Sycamore lace bug (Corythucha ciliata)

Mode of action

The nematodes enter the pest and release symbiotic bacteria into the pest's body cavity. These bacteria convert the host tissue into a food source, on which nematodes feed, develop, and reproduce inside the host. This kills the pest within a few hours to days after infection.

Visual effect

Infected pest insects in the root zone turn yellow to brown but may be difficult to find, due to rapid degradation. Infected foliar pests simply fall to the ground.
