Abstract The insecticidal effect of the entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus (Wise) Brown and Smith (Ascomycota: Hypocreales) was evaluated against adults and larvae of the confused flour beetle, Tribolium confusum Jacquelin du Val (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) and larvae of the Mediterranean flour moth, Ephestia kuehniella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae). The fungus was added in stored wheat at two dose rates, 200 and 400 ppm, at two temperature levels, 20 and 25 °C alone or in… Expand
Efficacy of entomopathogenic fungi against the stored-grain pests, Sitophilus granarius L. and S. oryzae L. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
This study indicated that M. fumosorosea had a significant potential as a biological control agent against S. granarius and S. oryzae and further studies are necessary to evaluate the efficacy of the isolate on the pests under storage conditions. Expand

TLDR
The combination of all three agents did not differ from either the application of the agents tested alone, or their binary combinations, in most treatments examined. Expand

Entomopathogenic fungi and plant essential oils are not compatible in controlling Tribolium castaneum (Herbst)
TLDR
Although EOs and EPF are successful agents to control adults T. castaneum when used separately, it cannot be applied in combination because of the conflicting effect. Expand

TLDR
A blastospore-formulated product of Isaria fumosorosea (PFR-97TM 20% WDG) against Microtheca ochroloma Stål, the yellowmargined leaf beetle, which is a pest in crucifer crops during the late fall and winter months in Florida is evaluated. Expand
Mixing of Isaria fumosorosea with enhanced diatomaceous earth and bitterbarkomycin for control of Rhyzopertha dominica
TLDR
The results clearly demonstrated that Isaria fumosorosea and new enhanced DEBBM can be integrated to be an effective control measure for R. dominica in stored wheat. Expand
Evaluation of the entomopathogenic fungi Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae, and Isaria fumosorosea for control of Sitophilus oryzae.
TLDR
High efficacy levels recorded in the current study indicate that the tested fungi could be effective biocontrol agents against S. oryzae, and survival was high in some of the combinations tested, even after 14 days of exposure. Expand
Influence of Temperature and Relative Humidity on the Insecticidal Efficacy of Metarhizium anisopliae against Larvae of Ephestia kuehniella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) on Wheat
TLDR
Although complete control was not achieved in any case, the fungus provided a considerable level of insect control and the increase of temperature resulted in most cases to higher efficacy, indicating that temperature is an important factor for the performance of the fungus. Expand
Evaluation of alternative Plutella xylostella control by two Isaria fumosorosea conidial formulations - oil-based formulation and wettable powder - combined with Bacillus thuringiensis.
TLDR
The combined application of I. fumosorosea and B. thuringiensis is a promising alternative strategy for P. xylostella control and female longevity and fecundity were significantly reduced by the two formulations at high concentration compared with the control. Expand
Efficacy of Metarhizium anisopliae combined with diatomaceous earth against Sitophilus oryzae(Coleoptera: Curculionidae) under laboratory conditions
TLDR
Findings suggest that the combined application of entomopathogenic fungi and DE is more effective than when applied singly against the rice weevil, Sitophilus oryzae. Expand

Effect of the combined use of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschinkoff) Sorokin and diatomaceous earth for the control of three stored-product beetle species
TLDR
Evaluating the use of the entomopathogenic fungus against adults of three stored-grain beetle species, Rhyzopertha dominica, Sitophilus oryzae and Tribolium confusum, found that significantly less progeny were produced on wheat treated with the highest dosage of powder conidia combined with DE, in comparison with the other treatments. Expand
Insecticidal effect of three diatomaceous earth formulations against adults of Sitophilus oryzae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and Tribolium confusum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) on oat, rye, and triticale.
TLDR
For both species, progeny production in the treated grains was significantly reduced in comparison with the untreated grains, whereas significant differences were noted among commodities, formulations, and dose rates. Expand
Evaluation of an entomopathogenic fungus, Paecilomyces fumosoroseus (Wize) Brown and Smith (Deuteromycota: Hyphomycetes) obtained from Formosan subterranean termites (Isop., Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
An isolate of Paecilomyces fumosoroseus was obtained from Coptotermes formosanus collected in Hong Kong, and a commercially available isolate of Metarhizium anisopliae, were both tested against C. formsosanus shipped live from China and showed significant differences in terms of termite survivorship.

Lethal effect of Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae, and Paecilomyces fumosoroseus on the eggs of Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Acari: Tetranychidae) with a description of a mite egg bioassay system
TLDR
The results confirmed the ovicidal activity of the threeFungal species and suggested the feasibility to search for more ovicidal isolates from fungal species that may serve as biocontrol agents against spider mites such as T. cinnabarinus. Expand
Effectiveness of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschinkoff) Sorokin applied alone or in combination with diatomaceous earth against Tribolium confusum Du Val larvae: Influence of temperature, relative humidity and type of commodity
TLDR
The results of the present work suggest that, under certain circumstances, the effectiveness of M. anisopliae against T. confusum larvae can be benefitted by the presence of DE. Expand
