Entomologists Ted Cottrell (left) and David Shapiro-Ilan observe beneficial nematodes (Steinernema carpocapsae) that are used to control the lesser peachtree borer. Shapiro-Ilan and Cottrell developed a sprayable gel as a novel method for protecting the nematodes from desiccation (extreme dryness) and UV radiation.
