The growing demand for reducing chemical inputs in agriculture and increased resistance to insecticides have provided great impetus to the development of alternative forms of insect-pest control. Entomopathogenic fungi are potentially the most versatile biological control agents due to their wide host range. These fungi comprise a diverse group of over 90 genera with approximately 750 species, reported from different insects. Entomopathogenic fungi are naturally occurring organisms which are… 
STUDY OF Beauveria bassiana AND Paecilomyces sp. FILTRATES AGAINST Spodoptera litura F.
TLDR
This study aims to determine the effectiveness of the extract of entomopathogenic fungi, B. bassiana and Paecilomyces sp.
Pesticidal Evaluation of Entomopathogenic Fungi and Selected Medicinal Plants against Cabbage Aphid (Brevicoryne brassicae L.)
TLDR
It revealed that a given combination displayed considerable efficacy to reduce B. brassicae (aphids) infestation, and products of fungal isolates and plant extracts should be used for further tests against other insect pests.
Virulence of Beauveria bassiana from Different Carbohydrate Sources Against Riptortuslinearis L. (Hemiptera: Alydidae)
TLDR
This research showed that B. bassiana grown in the various media had no significant effect on the mortality of R. linearis imago, and the lowest LT50 R.linearis was caused by B.bassiana infection grown on rice media.
Virulence of Entomopathogenic Fungi Isolates against Green Ladybug Nezara viridula L. (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) Eggs
TLDR
Entomopathogenic fungi are one of the potential biological control agents for controlling N. viridula eggs and showed that the lowest percentage of eggs hatched due to MetTrP isolate reached 0%, but not significantly different from B. bassiana (10%) and MetKP isolate (11.67%).
Biological control of desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria Forskål).
TLDR
Through a comprehensive research, an integrated pest management strategy that incorporates these bio-controls would be a realistic option to control desert locust infestations.
Effectiveness of Secondary Metabolites from Entomopathogenic Fungi for Control Nilaparvata lugens Stål. in the Laboratory Scale
TLDR
The results showed that the secondary metabolites of the Lecanicillium saksenae, Myrothecium sp.
Management of Cabbage Aphid (Brevicoryne brassicae L. (Homoptera: Aphididae)) on Ethiopian Mustard (Brassica carinata Braun) using Entomopathogenic Fungi and Selected Insecticides
TLDR
The 100% mortality of the half dose of karate with BEI1 within seven days was a good indication that the IPM could reduce pollution problem, and four strains of entomopathogenic fungi could be further tested in the field to realize their potential as bioinsecticides for integrated pest management to control mustard aphids.
Identification of Novel Pesticides for Use against Glasshouse Invertebrate Pests in UK Tomatoes and Peppers
TLDR
The results suggest that certain biopesticide products, particularly botanicals, provide good levels of pest control, with the same being true of experimental conventional chemical pesticides not yet recommended for use against these pests on these crops.
The Density and Viability of Metarhizium anisopliae Conidia on Several Growth Media
Metarhizium anisopliae is a parasitic fungus on insects, and thus called entomopathogenic fungus. This fungus is used as a biological control agent for insect pests. Fungal propagation can be done
PATHOGENICITY OF Metarhizium anisopliae AGAINST Lipaphis
TLDR
Eleven fungal isolates along with six commercial formulations two each of Beauveria bassiana, M. anisopliae and Lecanicillium lecanii with untreated control were evaluated against nymphal stage of Lipaphis erysimi KALT, with Procured isolates Ma-13 was most pathogenic and caused maximum mean cumulative mortality when evaluated under laboratory condition.

Entomopathogenic Fungi as Potent Agents of Biological Control
TLDR
The present review gives a brief picture of environmental factors affecting pathogenicity as well as mode of virulence of entomopathogenic fungi with special mention to their virulence factors involved in pathogenesis.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Entomopathogenic Fungi
TLDR
Understanding of physiological aspects of growth, metabolic activity, genetic basis of virulence and host specificity-challenges, isolation of mutants with enhanced virulence, and construction of environmentally safe strains with limited persistence should be possible within the forseeable future.
Can fungal biopesticides control malaria?
TLDR
It is proposed that it might now be possible to produce a cheap, safe and green tool for the control of malaria, which, in contrast to most chemical insecticides, will not eventually be rendered useless by evolution of resistance.
Ecology of Terrestrial Fungal Entomopathogens
TLDR
Some research efforts are directed toward understanding the factors leading to fungal infection in insects in order to investigate the potential for manipulating these systems to enhance levels of infection and promote development of epizootics (disease outbreaks).
Biological Control of Insect Pests by Entomogenous Fungi
TLDR
For the past 15 years, research with the entomogenous fungi has benefitted from a renewed interest, which arose from a better understanding of the role of natural phenomena in the regulati on of insect populations, among which epizoot­ ics caused by fungi have played a d eterminant part in certain cases.
Construction of an improved mycoinsecticide overexpressing a toxic protease.
TLDR
Environmental persistence of the genetically engineered fungus is reduced, thereby providing biological containment, and the development of a genetically improved entomopathogenic fungus is reported here.
INTERACTIONS BETWEEN FUNGAL PATHOGENS AND INSECT HOSTS
TLDR
To develop fungi for control purposes, it is needed to understand the requirements for the high levels of disease transmission i the field that are characteristic of epizootics.
Improving the Pathogenicity of a Nematode-Trapping Fungus by Genetic Engineering of a Subtilisin with Nematotoxic Activity
TLDR
It is reported that a subtilisin-like extracellular serine protease designated PII is an important pathogenicity factor in the common nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora and the paralyzing activity of PII was verified by demonstrating that a heterologous-produced PII had a nematotoxic activity when added to free-living nematodes.
