Prove preliminari di lotta biologica con Beauveria bassiana e Metarhizium anisopliae nei confronti del Punteruolo rosso

Research output: Other contribution


[automatically translated] In an effort to identify the natural biological limiters R. ferrugineus was evaluated the potential antagonistic activity of two fungal microorganisms, belonging to species with proven entomopatogene attitudes against different insect asymptomatic stages (larvae and adults). More specifically, it was tested the effectiveness of a strain of Beauveria bassiana, isolated from a larva with obvious fungal efflorescence found in the town of Palermo and a commercial formulation based on Metarhizium anisopliae and B. bassiana. The artificial inoculation assays "in vitro" with these notes entomopatogene species have led, in some cases, the death of about 90% of treated individuals.
