Aedes aegypti is the vector of a wide range of diseases (e.g. yellow fever, dengue, Chikungunya and Zika) which impact on over half the world's population. Entomopathogenic fungi such as Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana have been found to be highly efficacious in killing mosquito larvae but only now are the underlying mechanisms for(More)
Entomopathogenic fungi offer much potential for the control of arthropod pests. Very little is known about the impact of inoculum drift and runoff on aquatic non-target invertebrates. In general, there are no clear guidelines on risk assessment of these biological control agents and their secreted compounds. In the current study, Metarhizium brunneum(More)
Biorational insecticides are being increasingly used in integrated pest management programs. In laboratory bioassays, the pathogenicity of blastospores and conidia of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium brunneum ARSEF 4556 was evaluated against larvae of three mosquito species. Three propagule concentrations (1 × 106, 1 × 107, and 1 × 108 spores ml - 1)(More)
