Larvicidal activity of Bacillus thuringiensis serovar israelensis against nuisance chironomid midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) of Japan



Larvicidal activity of Bacillus thuringiensis serovar israelensis against nuisance chironomid midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) of Japan



Letters in Applied Microbiology 15(5): 207-209



Larvae of 3 species of chironomid causing a nuisance problem in Japan were examined for their susceptibility to B. thuringiensis subsp. israelensis. Spore-parasporal inclusion complex gave a rapid and high mortality to 4th-instar larvae of Chironomus yoshimatsui (Chironominae) and Hydrobaenus kondoi (Orthocladiinae) within 24 h.
