Selection of Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae isolates to control Triatoma infestans.
Twenty three isolates of Beauveria bassiana and 13 isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae were tested on third instar nymphs of Triatoma infestans, a serious vector of Chagas disease. Pathogenicity testsExpand
Temperature and moisture requirements for conidial germination of an isolate of Beauveria bassiana, pathogenic to Rhodnius prolixus
The effects of temperature, relative humidity and water activity on germination of conidia of an isolate of Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill. pathogenic to the triatomine vector of Chagas' disease,Expand
Impact of moisture on in vitro germination of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana and their activity on Triatoma infestans.
The in vitro germination of 11 Metarhizium anisopliae and 11 Beauveria bassiana isolates originating from substrates collected in rural peridomestic areas in Central Brazil where triatomines areExpand
Diatomaceous earth and oil enhance effectiveness of Metarhizium anisopliae against Triatoma infestans.
Entomopathogenic fungi, especially Metarhizium anisopliae, have potential for integrated control of peridomestic triatomine bugs. However, the high susceptibility of these vectors to fungal infectionExpand
Occurrence of Metarhizium spp. in Central Brazilian soils
The biodiversity of entomopathogenic fungi in tropical ecosystems is still little investigated, and the objective of this study was to isolate and identify fungi of the entomopathogenic genusExpand
Potential of oil-based formulations of Beauveria bassiana to control Triatoma infestans
The in vitro development of Beauveria bassiana conidia was monitored when immersed in six concentrations of seven non-ionic (MP 6400, MP 600, Renex 60, Renex 95, Span 80, Tween 20 and Tween 80) andExpand
In vitro susceptibility to fungicides by invertebrate-pathogenic and saprobic fungi
The effect of five fungicides, benomyl (1 mg/l), dodine (50 mg/l), manzate (100 mg/l), cupric sulphate (200 mg/l) and thiabendazole (4 mg/l) was tested under in␣vitro conditions on development of 15Expand

The effect of both moisture and temperature on the infective potential of Beauveria bassiana to the Chagas' disease vector, Rhodnius prolixus, was studied under fluctuating regimes. At constant 25Expand
Activity of oil-formulated Beauveria bassiana against Triatoma sordida in peridomestic areas in Central Brazil.
Field tests were carried out during the rainy season of 2001/2002 in São Luís de Montes Belos, Goiás, Brazil, to evaluate the potential of the entomopathogenic fungus, Beauveria bassiana, againstExpand
