Viruses as pathogens for the control of insects

Microbiological methods for environmental biotechnology: recd 1986; 323-347

Viruses as pathogens for the control of insects

This review of viruses as microbial pesticides refers mainly to the use of these materials for the control of pests of crops and stored products, but includes some notes on arthropods of medical and veterinary importance.

When multiple natural enemies are used for biological control, the contribution of each to the combined mortality of the target is of concern. Using a functional response model, we show that, for the special case of a predator foraging after appli...
