Pathogenicity, formulation and storage of insect pathogenic hyphomycetous fungi tested against Diabrotica speciosa

Abstract

Studies were conducted tosearch for fungal strains with potentialpathogenicity against Diabrotica speciosa(Germar) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae).Among sixteen fungal isolates screenedthe most virulent was a Beauveria bassiana(Balsamo) Vuillemin isolate (FHD13) thatcaused 70% mortality of D. speciosathird instar larvae. The LC50 value ofB. bassiana isolate… (More)
