Effect of some disinfectants in prevention of silkworm white muscardine

Effect of some disinfectants in prevention of silkworm white muscardine

Current Research University of Agricultural Sciences Bangalore 22(6-8): 97-98

Several treatments, including bleaching powder, potassium permanganate and dithane M-45 (all 1 and 2%) and formalin (1 and 1.5%) were tested for the control of Beauveria bassiana infecting Bombyx mori. Formalin (1.5%) was the most effective treatment, while the least effective was 1.5% neem extract.
