Three isolates of Beauveria bassiana (bbsg8702, bbsg8701 and bbdn8804) were tested for their virulence and effect on the fecundity of Myzus persicae. Life and fertility tables were used to evaluate the control potential of B. bassiana against M. persicae populations. Adult aphids infected by the pathogen showed reproduction rates close to, or only slightly lower than those of the uninfected adults, until 1-2 days before their death.
