Toxicity of Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki to gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar, fed with alder or Douglas-fir



Toxicity of Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki to gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar, fed with alder or Douglas-fir



Journal of Invertebrate Pathology 64(2): 143-145



The response of larvae of Lymantria dispar, reared on either Alnus rhombifolia or Pseudotsuga menziesii following collection of egg masses from the field in Maryland in 1990, to treatment via an artificial diet with Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki (Javelin, 5% a.i.) was evaluated in the laboratory. Mortality was independent of dose in both food plant treatments, but was significantly greater for larvae fed the treated P. menziesii diet.
