A bioassay for measuring the virulence of the insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) Sorok. (fungi imperfecti) against the termite Nasutitermes exitiosus (Hill) (Isoptera, Termitidae)



A bioassay for measuring the virulence of the insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) Sorok. (fungi imperfecti) against the termite Nasutitermes exitiosus (Hill) (Isoptera, Termitidae)



Zeitschrift fur Angewandte Entomologie 92(1): 9-18



A bioassay developed in the German Federal Republic is described, in which termite workers from one colony of Nasutitermes exitiosus (Hill) were used to test the virulence of a strain of the pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae originally isolated from the homopteran Aeneolamia sp. The termites were sprayed with suspensions of conidia and kept for 11 days at 25 plus or minus 1 deg C and approximately 100% RH. Data on mortality 8 and 11 days after treatment were analysed using probits.
