The host range and relative efficacy of three purified Bacillus thuringiensis insect control proteins were determined against 17 different agronomically important insects representing five orders and one species of mite. The three B. thuringiensis proteins were single gene products from B. thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki HD-1 (CryIA(b)) and HD-73 (CryIA(c)), both lepidopteran-specific proteins, and B. thuringiensis ssp. tenebrionis (CryIIIA), a coleopteran-specific protein. Seven insects showed… CONTINUE READING
