Transmission agents of the nuclear polyhedrosis virus ofNeodiprion sertifer [Hym.: Diprionidae]


Colonies ofNeodiprion sertifer (Geoffroy) larvae infected by nuclear polyhedrosis virus were visited by parasitoids, predators, and scavengers. Six transmission pathways were studied in detail. Viable virus polyhedra (PIB) were isolated from external surfaces of parasitic wasps and faeces of tachinid flies, coccinellid larvae, and scavenging flies. Faeces… (More)
