Resumen

Esta revisión literaria se basa en control biológico de babosas usando el nemátodo Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita. Se describe la efectividad y modo de acción del nematodo según el ambiente. Además de su método de aplicación y dosis, comparado con molusquicidas químicos y el estudio a la bacterias al cual se asocia. P. hermaphrodita preferiría condiciones de suelo húmedas y actúa en babosas en estado juvenil de la especie Deroceras. Las aplicaciones parciales del nemátodo son menos costosas y deberían hacerse en lugares donde las babosas descansan. Existen otras especies de nemátodos controladores, no siendo efectivas para el control de babosas. Se requiere mayor investigación para probar en que momento actúa el nemátodo P. hermaphrodita pues no ha sido tan efectivo para el control de otras especies de babosas.
