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 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). Results indicated(More)
Three different germination types of conidia; unidirectional, bidirectional and multidirectional, were revealed through microscopic observations for eight Beauveria bassiana isolates germinated on Sabouraud dextrose agar. Canonical correlation analysis indicated that there is a positive correlation between unidirectional germination and virulence against(More)
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are found as important components of the innate immune system (host defense) of all invertebrates. These peptides can be constitutively expressed or induced in response to microbial infections. Indeed, they vary in their amino acid sequences, potency and antimicrobial activity spectra. The smaller AMPs act greatly by disrupting(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)
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)
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)
The effect of one entomopathogenic virus (PxGV) was studied on cabbage moth Plutella xylostella with hope to find management strategies of this insect, based on biological control. Bioassay showed that, this virus has high virulence and can be considered as the important agents on the control of this insect. The LC50 value of PxGV for second instar larvae(More)
In this article, the ontogeny and reproductive biology of Diadegma semiclausum (Hym.: Ichneumonidae), an important parasitoid of Plutella xylostella (Lep.: Plutellidae) are described in detail. We did dissect parasitized P. xylostella larvae in phosphate-buffered saline and determine the external morphology of its parasitoid at all developmental stages. The(More)
