Figure 1

Effect of inoculum doses on the emergence of infective juveniles of Steinernema feltiae from Galleria mellonella cadavers and comparison between Baermann extraction trays and modified White traps. Bars are the standard errors of means.

Figure 2

Relationship between inoculum doses and emergence of infective juveniles of Steinernema feltiae from Galleria mellonella cadavers using Baermann extraction trays and modified White traps. ywt and ybt represent regression equations regarding emergence of infective juveniles of Steinernema feltiae from Galleria mellonella with modified White traps and Baermann extraction trays, respectively.

Figure 3

Effect of inoculum doses on overall penetration of infective juveniles of Steinernema feltiae into Galleria mellonella and relationship between penetration of IJ and inoculum doses. Bars are the standard errors of means.

Figure 4

Effect of time intervals (days) on overall penetration of infective juveniles of Steinernema feltiae into Galleria mellonella and relationship between penetration of IJ and days. Bars are the standard errors of means.

Figure 5

Effect of each inoculum dose on the penetration of infective juveniles of Steinernema feltiae into Galleria mellonella at each time interval (day). Bars are the standard errors of means. y1, y2 and y3 represent regression equations regarding penetration of infective juveniles of Steinernema feltiae into Galleria mellonella at 800, 8000 and 80000 IJ dose.
