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
New insights on the effectiveness of Metarhizium anisopliae formulation and application against Aedes aegypti eggs
Increasing needs for innovative control tools against the dengue vector Aedes aegypti have prompted investigations into the development of specific mycoinsecticides. The entomopathogenic fungusExpand
Effectiveness of Metarhizium anisopliae formulations against dengue vectors under laboratory and field conditions
ABSTRACT The oviposition behaviour of Aedes aegypti and the effectiveness of Metarhizium anisopliae conidia formulated in water or oil-in-water against A. aegypti adults and eggs were tested inExpand
Lecanicillium attenuatum isolates affecting the invasive cypress aphid (Cinara cupressi) in Chile
The cypress aphid (Cinara cupressi) is listed among the hundred most important invasive pests in the world. In Chile, it was first detected in 2003 and currently is present throughout the country. InExpand
New insights into the amphibious life of Biomphalaria glabrata and susceptibility of its egg masses to fungal infection.
The air-breathing snail Biomphalaria glabrata proliferates in stagnant freshwater, and nothing is known about the survival of eggs in intermittently (rather than perpetually) wet habitats. In theExpand
Efficacy of entomopathogenic hypocrealean fungi against Periplaneta americana.
The American cockroach Periplaneta americana, one of the worlds' most important urban insect pests was tested with entomopathogenic fungi. Most promising Metarhizium anisopliae, Metarhizium robertsiiExpand
Efficacy of water- and oil-in-water-formulated Metarhizium anisopliae in Rhipicephalus sanguineus eggs and eclosing larvae
Conidia of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae (Ascomycota: Clavicipitaceae) were assessed against Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Arachnida: Ixodidae) eggs under laboratory conditions.Expand
UV‐B radiation reduces in vitro germination of Metarhizium anisopliae s.l. but does not affect virulence in fungus‐treated Aedes aegypti adults and development on dead mosquitoes
Control of diurnal Aedes aegypti with mycoinsecticides should consider the exposure of fungus‐treated adults to sunlight, and especially to UV‐B radiation that might affect activity of conidiaExpand
Effect of formulated Metarhizium anisopliae on eggs and eclosing nymphs of Triatoma infestans
Little is known about the ovicidal effects of fungi that attack nymphs and adults of triatomine vectors. A combined formulation of Metarhizium anisopliae IP 46 conidia prepared with diatomaceousExpand
New insights into the infection of the American cockroach Periplaneta americana nymphs with Metarhizium anisopliae s.l. (Ascomycota: Hypocreales)
To study the marked resistance of Periplaneta americana to entomopathogenic Metarhizium anisopliae.
