Effect of Grasshopper Species, Cage Density, Light Intensity, and Method of Inoculation on Mass Production of Nosema locustae (Microsporida: Nosematidae)
- J. Henry
- 1 December 1985
Increasing light intensity with 25-W to 60-W clear light bulbs, and resulting temperature increases, resulted in increased average yields of 3.8 × 109 to 6.4 × 109 spores, respectively, per grasshopper.
Nosema montanae n.sp. (Microsporida: Nosematidae), a parasite from the grasshopper Melanoplus packardii (Orthoptera: Acrididae)
Pathology and Development of the Grasshopper Inclusion Body Virus in Melanoplus sanguinipes
Investigation of viral replication showed that at about 8 days after inoculation presumptive viral particles had developed as buds or protrusions from precursor granular masses; thereafter, these particles underwent internal differentiation and were incorporated into developing inclusion bodies.
Importance of timing, spore concentrations, and levels of spore carrier in applications of Nosema locustae (Microsporida: Nosematidae) for control of grasshoppers
Large-Scale Test of Control of Grasshoppers on Rangeland with Nosema locustae
Parasitism of grasshoppers by entomophagous flies and nematodes decreased sharply in malathion plots, but tended to increase in N. locustae and untreated plots.

During the past several years I have made laboratory and field studies of Nosema locustae Canning (Microspidia: Nosematidae), a pathogen of the fat bodies, pericardial tissues, and neural tissues of…
Low Rates of Insecticides and Nosema locustae (Microsporidia: Nosematidae) on Baits Applied to Roadsides for Grasshopper (Orthoptera: Acrididae) Control
Wheat-bran baits treated with either low dosages of chemical insecticides (carbaryl and dimethoate) or with Nosema locustae Canning were applied to reduce abundance of grasshoppers in roadside vegetation to provide acceptable short-term reductions.

Drechslera hawaiiensis: causative agent of a fatal fungal meningo-encephalitis.
The isolate of Drechslera hawaiiensis was isolation from the base of the brain of a fatal disease of unknown origin with severe neurological symptoms in a human and in histological sections abundant, dematiaceous, septate mycelial elements were present.
