Laboratory bioassay of the PG-14 isolate of Bacillus thuringiensis var. morrisoni (serotype 8a:8b) against early fourth instar larvae of 8 species of mosquitoes revealed a range of susceptibilities similar to the susceptibilities of these species to Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (serotype 14). The most susceptible species were: Culex quinquefasciatus, Cx. salinarius, Anopheles albimanus and Aedes aegypti. The least susceptible species tested was An. quadrimaculatus. Separate bioassays… CONTINUE READING
