Abstract: 
Cells and cell-free solutions of the culture filtrate of the bacterial symbiont, xenorhabdus nematophila taken from the entomopathogenic nematode steinernema carpocapsae in aqueous broth suspensions were lethal to larvae of the diamondback moth plutella xylostella. Their application on leaves of Chinese cabbage indicated that the cells can penetrate into the insects in the absence of the nematode vector. Cell-free solutions containing metabolites were also proved as effective as bacterial cells suspension. The application of aqueous suspensions of cells of X. nematophila or solutions containing its toxic metabolites to the leaves represents a possible new strategy for controlling insect pests on foliage.
