Contamination of arthropod predators with Heliothis nuclear polyhedrosis virus after Elcar applications to soybean for control of Heliothis spp. (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)



Contamination of arthropod predators with Heliothis nuclear polyhedrosis virus after Elcar applications to soybean for control of Heliothis spp. (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)



Journal of Entomological Science, 253: 486-492



Application of Elcar (Heliothis nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV)) to a soyabean field in Arkansas in 1988 at 9 x 1010 and 36 x 1010 polyhedral inclusion bodies (PIB) per ha resulted in only low levels of mortality (7 to 26.0%) from NPV in larvae of Heliothis spp. collected up to 14 days after treatment. Bioassay of NPV in predators collected from 36 x 1010 PIB/ha-treated plots revealed that 16.9 and 14.8% were contaminated with virus 7 and 14 days, resp., after application.
