Preliminary field tests on the use of Metarhizium anisopliae for the control of Nasutitermes exitiosus (Hill) (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Preliminary field tests on the use of Metarhizium anisopliae for the control of Nasutitermes exitiosus (Hill) (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Bulletin of Entomological Research 73(2): 305-313



The insect-pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae caused heavy mortality in laboratory groups of the Australian termite Nasutitermes exitiosus (Hill) to which infected workers had been added. Conidia of M. anisopliae started an epizootic when introduced into field colonies of N. exitiosus near Canberra, irrespective of whether the termites were treated by dusting or spraying in the mound itself, or dusting in nearby feeding sites.
