The functional response of the predatory mite, Phytoseiulus persimilis Athias- Henriot was examined on either non-inoculated or inoculated adults of the spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch by Beauveria bassiana DEBI008 with four time intervals; 0, 24, 48 and 72-h treatments, at 25 ± 1 °C, 60–70 % RH and a photoperiod of 16:8 h (L: D).

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is the most effective microbial control agent for controlling numerous species from different insect orders. All subspecies and strains of B. thuringiensis can produce a spore and a crystalline parasporal body. This crystal which contains proteinaceous protoxins is dissolved in the alkaline midgut, the resulting molecule is then(More)
The bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Berliner and the braconid wasp Habrobracon hebetor Say are valuable biocontrol agents attacking larval stages of Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner). Little information is available regarding combination of these biocontrol agents during integrated management of H. armigera. To address this knowledge gap, we document(More)
The two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae), is one of the most important pests in agriculture. Due to its short life cycle and high reproductive rate, this pest has become resistant to most acaricides. Therefore, finding alternative control strategies for this damaging pest is necessary. Application of microbiological(More)
Effects of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) on immature stages of Diadegma insulare (Cresson) (Hym., Ichneumonidae) within larvae of diamondback moth (DBM), Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lep., Plutellidae), and on the adult stage as a Bt-honey solution were evaluated at 25 ± 1 °C, 65 ± 10% r.h. and 16:8 h (L:D) photoperiod. P. xylostella and D. insulare pupae were(More)
