Status of the alien pathogen Paranosema locustae (Microsporidia) in grasshoppers (Orthoptera: Acridoidea) of the Argentine Pampas
- Environmental Science
Susceptible species with geographic distributions mostly restricted to the establishment area and with numerically small populations, like the melanopline Scotussa daguerrei, are predicted to be the ones facing higher risks of negative impacts.
Biological approaches of termite management: A review
In order to reduce the chemical consumption, the vast area of biological alternatives needs to be explored as they provide us with many beneficial aspects like sustainability, suitable application, biodegradable nature, target specificity etc.
Biorational strategies for the management of insect pests of spice crops
This review consolidates the information available on the use of biorational strategies for the management of insect pests of spice crops such as Piper nigrum (black pepper), Elettaria cardamomum (cardamom), Zingiber officinale (ginger), Curcuma longa (turmeric), Coriandrum sativum (coriander), Cuminum cyminum ( cumin) and Foeniculum vulgare (fennel).
The microbiome of pest insects
This review presents some key examples of how the different members of the microbiome, such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, archaea, and protozoa, affect the fitness and behavior of pest insects and argues that interactions within and among microbial groups are abundant and of great importance, necessitating the use of a community approach to study microbial–host interactions.
The microbiome of pest insects: it is not just bacteria
- BiologyEntomologia Experimentalis et Applicata
It is proposed that the restricted focus on bacteria very likely hampers the understanding of the functioning and impact of the microbiome on the biology of pest insects, and that interactions within and among microbial groups are abundant and of great importance, necessitating the use of a community approach to study microbial–host interactions.
Infectivity, viability and effects of Paranosema locustae (Microsporidia) on juveniles of Dichroplus maculipennis (Orthoptera: Acrididae: Melanoplinae) under laboratory conditions
Infectivity and effects on host of a long-term stored aqueous suspension of Paranosema locustae on juveniles of Dichroplus maculipennis, a pest grasshopper in parts of the Pampas and Patagonia, were…
Biological Control of Termites by Antagonistic Soil Microorganisms
Synergistic combination of biocontrol agents with chemical pesticides and cultivation of termite-resistant crops could help in the management of termites under field conditions.
Prevalence and infection intensity of the biocontrol agent Paranosema locustae (Microsporidia) in field-collected, newly-associated hosts (Orthoptera: Acrididae: Melanoplinae)
Abstract Host range, prevalence, and infection intensity of Paranosema locustae in grasshoppers at an establishment site in Patagonia, Argentina, were recorded. Results agreed with earlier…
Selection of Antonospora locustae (Protozoa: Microsporidae) with higher virulence against Locusta migratoria manilensis (Orthoptera:Acrididae)
The results showed that all three isolates can infect the locust and that pathogenicity increased gradually with increased dose, and the virulence of all isolates increased significantly.
