A new effective biological pathogen for the control of mosquitoes

A new effective biological pathogen for the control of mosquitoes

Vestnik Akademii Nauk Kazakhskoi SSRrecd 1983; (5): 38-43

Field trials carried out in lakes in various parts of Kazakhstan, USSR, with different temperatures, pH and organic components showed that Bacillus thuringiensis serotype H 14 was 100% effective in controlling larvae of Culex spp., Culiseta alaskaensis (Ludl.), Aedes spp. and Anopheles hyrcanus (Pall.).
