Abstract

The recovery of infective trichostrongyle larvae from soil was achieved by a technique similar to that developed by Jørgensen (1975) to isolate Dictyocaulus vivipares larvae from herbage. Thus a process of sedimentation and filtration followed by extraction using a Baermann apparatus resulted in a clean and easily read preparation.
