Abstract:About 5 million eggs of a parasitic mennithid nematode, Filipjevimermis leipsandra Poinar and Welch, were produced each week during a 6-month period for laboratory and field experimentation by modification of existing techniques and development of new ones for culturing the parasite in vivo. The current procedures for mass rearing F. leipsandra are described.
