Please let me know if you come across any sites with high infestations of white grubs. This could be either wattle, eucalypt or pine sites. We have a new PhD student (Birhan Addisie) who is looking at the potential use of EPNs (entomopathogenic nematodes) for the management of white grubs, and we would greatly appreciate any assistance in identifying sites for collection.
If you do know of any suitable sites, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
