Inert dusts and their effects on the poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae)
TLDR
A tarsal test showed that 24 h exposure to surfaces treated with doses much lower than those recommended by the producers is sufficient to kill mites as fast as when they were dusted with massive doses, emphasising the need for thorough treatment of all surfaces in a poultry house in order to combat D. gallinae.

Complementarity of statistical treatments to reconstruct worldwide routes of invasion: the case of the Asian ladybird Harmonia axyridis
TLDR
This study provides biologists without expertise in this area with detailed methodological and conceptual guidelines for making inferences about invasion routes when dealing with a large number of sampling sites and complex population genetic structures. Expand
Musca domestica Salivary Gland Hypertrophy Virus, a Globally Distributed Insect Virus That Infects and Sterilizes Female Houseflies
TLDR
Regardless of the MdSGHV isolate tested, all susceptible insects displayed similar degrees of SGH and complete suppression of oogenesis; however, 24-h-old flies displayed a resistance to oral infection that was significantly greater than that displayed by newly eclosed adults. Expand
Living with the enemy: parasites and pathogens of the ladybird Harmonia axyridis
TLDR
An overview of the parasites and pathogens of coccinellids with a particular focus on H. axyridis as a host is provided and it is predicted that H.Axyridis could benefit from both enemy release and EICA within the introduced range but require further empirical evidence. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi in flies associated with pastured cattle in Denmark.
TLDR
A 2-year study of the natural occurrence of entomopathogenic fungi in adult cattle flies and other flies associated with pastures showed that the four species included in the Entomophthora muscae species complex caused high infection levels in several species of flies. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi associated with Ixodes ricinus ticks
TLDR
Entomopathogenic fungi may have a significant impact on the size of the I. ricinus population, since females were the most frequently infected stage and throughout the season, a significantly higher proportion of ticks collected in autumn were infected. Expand
Effect of Paecilomyces fumosoroseus (Wise) Brown and Smith (Ascomycota: Hypocreales) alone or in combination with diatomaceous earth against Tribolium confusum Jacquelin du Val (Coleoptera:
TLDR
The insecticidal effect of the entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus (Wise) Brown and Smith was evaluated against adults and larvae of the confused flour beetle, Tribolium confusum Jacquelin du Val and children of the Mediterranean flour moth, Ephestia kuehniella Zeller. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi recorded from the harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis.
TLDR
The larval stage was most susceptible to fungal infection, as confirmed through bioassay with I. farinosa, which is the first record of entomopathogenic fungi infecting larvae and pupae. Expand
Effect of Metarhizium anisopliae (Deuteromycotina: Hyphomycetes) on Survival and Reproduction of the Filth Fly Parasitoid, Spalangia cameroni (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae)
TLDR
The susceptibility of the parasitoids to fungal infection had no discernible effect on the intrinsic rate of natural increase (rm), which strongly suggests that the isolate of M. anisopliae and S. cameroni could be compatible under field conditions. Expand
Synergistic interaction between the fungus Beauveria bassiana and desiccant dusts applied against poultry red mites (Dermanyssus gallinae)
TLDR
Combinations of desiccant dusts and fungus conidia seem to hold considerable promise for future non-chemical control of poultry red mites. Expand
