EPNs can be reared by in vivo methods, with yields of 100,000-200,000 infective juveniles per G.
With the implementing rules of EO 30 taking effect last May, the DOE has so far certified one project as an EPNS. This is the $1.2-billion Mindanao-Visayas Interconnection Project (MVIP) of National Grid Corp.
There were also no difficulties in applying EPNs, as they are easily sprayed using standard equipment's including pressurized, mist, fan, electrostatic and aerial sprayers, and can be combined with almost all chemical control compounds (Georgis and Kaya, 1998; Ruhela, 2008; Radova, 2010, 2011).
The species belongs to these two families are lethal and obligate pathogen of insects, that's why many important insect pests of crops, such as the citrus weevil,, fungus gnats, flowers thrips, Field crickets and scarab beetles have successfully been controlled by these EPNs. To save crops from pest prevalence, we are applying agricultural pesticides unconsciously.
In the laboratory, EPNs were isolated with the trap method using live bait (larvae of Galleria mellonella L., Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) (BEDDING & AKHURST, 1975).
As we developed a set of desired characteristics for EPNs, we proceeded with the assumption that they function not only cognitively but also at symbolic and affective levels (Greenhalgh and Hurwitz 1999; Charon 2001)--and that they require both "a teller and a listener" as they are by definition a form of discourse which requires "someone telling someone else that something happened" (Charon 2001, including quote from Smith).
During 1996-2004, studies on distribution, isolation, biology, taxonomy and efficacy of EPNs have been carried out in Pakistan.

"They were hurried through EPNs regulatory process with 'conditional registrations,' and scientific research continues to reveal more about their harmful effects--on pollinators and beyond."
