Current developments in microbial control of insect pests and prospects for the early 21st century

  title={Current developments in microbial control of insect pests and prospects for the early 21st century},
  author={Lawrence A. Lacey and Mark S. Goettel},
The role of microbial control in crop and forest protection and the abatement of insects of medical and veterinary importance has expanded considerably with the discovery and development of new microbial control agents and genetic improvement in bacterial and viral pathogens, and improvements in formulation, application options and compatibility with other interventions. A synopsis of the literature regarding the current use of bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans and nematodes as microbial… CONTINUE READING
