Entomopathogenic fungal isolates of Arachnid origin were assessed for their ability to produce mortality and inhibit egg hatching in Boophilus microplus with the aim of selecting an isolate for development into a myco-acaricide for control of cattle ticks. The ability of the most promising isolate to target developmental stages of more than one tick species and the optimum concentration of fungal inoculum to be used for future studies were determined. Metarhizium anisopliae was the most… CONTINUE READING
