Sporulation characteristics and virulence of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana were examined in relation to laboratory transmission in Coptotermes formosanus. Fungal isolates significantly affected disease prevalence in termite populations. Sporulation of M. anisopliae played a more important role than virulence in producing epizootics within small groups of termites, but this was not the case for B. bassiana. Isolates characterized by quick sporulation (day 2 after death) did not… CONTINUE READING
