Harmonia axyridis is a predatory coccinellid, native to central and eastern Asia. It has been available in many countries for use as a biological control agent of pest aphids and scale insects. In many of these countries, including the USA, H. axyridis has established. It is now considered an invasive alien species for a number of reasons, including its impact on functional biodiversity. Beauveria bassiana is known to be a natural mortality agent of overwintering coccinellids and is a potential… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The infection of Harmonia axyridis by a parasitic nematode is mediated by entomopathogenic bacteria and triggers sex-specific host immune responses
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the female immune system responds much more strongly to the nematodes and provokes a more robust invasion strategy involving the bacterial mutualists, which could help develop a biological strategy to counter the spread of this insect pest.
A "clean" alien species? Parasites of the invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
This paper reports for the first time the infection of H. axyridis by the eugregarine Gregarina barbarara in NW Poland, indicating that the multicoloured Asian ladybird Harmonia axyridi is rarely infested or infected by parasites.
Mortality of native and invasive ladybirds co-infected by ectoparasitic and entomopathogenic fungi
TLDR
It is hypothesized that high thallus densities of the ectoparasitic fungus Hesperomyces virescens on a ladybird weaken the host’s defenses, thereby making it more susceptible to infection by other natural enemies.
Lecanicillium muscarium and Adalia bipunctata combination for the control of black bean aphid, Aphis fabae
TLDR
This research study demonstrates that it is possible to combine A. bipunctata with L. muscarium to provide a sustainable method for management of A. fabae on broad bean cropping system and that field studies are required.
Avoidance of a generalist entomopathogenic fungus by the ladybird, Coccinella septempunctata.
TLDR
It is predicted that behavioural responses to B. bassiana infection are widespread and driven by the high cost of fungal infection to a host.
Mortality of native and invasive ladybirds co-infected by ectoparasitic and entomopathogenic fungi
TLDR
It is hypothesized that high thallus densities of the ectoparasitic fungus Hesperomyces virescens on a ladybird weaken the host’s defenses, thereby making it more susceptible to infection by other natural enemies.
Orientation of Hippodamia variegata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) to healthy and Beauveria bassiana-infected Aphis fabae (Hemiptera: Aphididae) in an olfactometer system
TLDR
The olfactory response of the predatory insect H. variegata when receiving odors pertaining to Aphis fabae infected by B. bassiana is investigated to suggest that under laboratory conditions H.variegata could detect and avoid B.bassiana conidia; thus, B. Bassiana would be a negligible threat to this predator.
Susceptibility of the Mexican bean beetle Epilachna varivestis Mulsant (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) to endemic isolates of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin (Hypocreales: Clavicipitaceae)
TLDR
It is concluded that native isolates of B. bassiana represent an important alternative for the control of E. varivestis, however, to demonstrate its effectiveness under field conditions, detailed studies are needed.
Target-oriented dissemination of Beauveria bassiana conidia by the predators, Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) and Chrysoperla carnea (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) for biocontrol of Myzus persicae
TLDR
It appears that B. bassiana can be effectively delivered using certain insect predators, as there was a 20% reduction in predation by lady beetle larvae.

Field evaluation of Beauveria bassiana: its persistence and effects on the pea aphid and a non-target coccinellid in alfalfa.
TLDR
Several strains of the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana have been considered for use as microbial insecticides and its persistence and its effects on pea aphids and a non-target aphid predator were determined.

TLDR
Isolate ARSEF 3113 has potential as a control agent in an integrated pest management program in corn for the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis, but its impact on beneficial insects must also be considered.
Overwintering, phenology and fecundity of Harmonia axyridis in comparison with native coccinellid species in Italy
TLDR
The results show that H. axyridis appears to posses a high potential for establishment in Italy, and post-overwintering rate of increase of the exotic species was higher.

TLDR
Collectively, coccinellids may be important biological control agents of tobacco aphids on Georgia flue-cured tobacco.

TLDR
The capability of H. axyridis to develop on a diet of only C. maculata eggs and the propensity for either species to prey upon the other were tested, as well as the tendency of each species to cannibalize similar-sized larvae.
