There was only one generation of Steinernema feltiae in Bradysia paupera. Infection occurred after 3 h, adults developed 27 h after invasion and new infective juveniles (IJ) were produced after 48 h. Stunted females were produced in B. paupera larvae and in other small hosts and these stunted females produced small IJs. The small IJs were capable of infecting hosts and normal sized Us were produced in succeeding generations in Galleria mellonella.
