Control of grasshoppers and locusts has traditionally relied on synthetic insecticides, and for emergency situations this is unlikely to change. However, a growing awareness of the environmental… Expand
Development of mass production technology for aerial conidia for use as mycopesticides
In any microbial control programme, production of sufficient quantities of good quality inoculum becomes essential to its success. The inoculum produced must be both consistent and compatible with… Expand

Effects of Rehydration on the Conidial Viability of Metarhizium flavoviride Mycopesticide Formulations
The rehydration of dried conidia of Metarhizium flavoviride was investigated in an attempt to increase speed of kill of locusts and grasshoppers by formulations of this fungus. Conidia were dried t...
An assessment of the impact of biological and chemical grasshopper control agents on ground-dwelling arthropods in Niger, based on presence/absence sampling
Abstract Medium-scale experimental field applications of two grasshopper and locust control agents, the mycoinsecticide Metarhizium anisopliae ( flavoviride ) var. acridum (Deuteromycotina:… Expand

Development of strategies for the incorporation of biological pesticides into the integrated management of locusts and grasshoppers
1 Effective biological pesticides based on oil formulation of deuteromycete fungal spores have been developed for use against locusts and grasshoppers. The isolate IMI 330189 of Metarhizium… Expand
