A laboratory evaluation of the repellency of Metarhizium anisopliae conidia to Coptotermes lacteus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)



A laboratory evaluation of the repellency of Metarhizium anisopliae conidia to Coptotermes lacteus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)



Sociobiology 36(1): 133-148



An agar-tube method for quantifying the repellency of different isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae to Coptotermes lacteus termites is described. Twenty grams of moist sand is placed firmly in the base of a 50 ml plastic centrifuge tube and 2% water agar poured to the 45 ml mark. The sand is mixed with a conidial suspension to assess the effect of concentration and isolate on repellency.
