Simplified production system for the fungus lagenidium giganteum for operational mosquito control






Mosquito News 44(3): 377-381

Simplified production system for the fungus lagenidium giganteum for operational mosquito control

A protocol is presented for the production of L. giganteum, a fungal pathogen of mosquito larvae, using a 2-phase system consisting of aqueous extracts of sunflower seed in liquid medium and in solid agar-base medium. The cultures on solid medium are applied in the field and may be stored for up to 12 wk at 15.degree.-16.degree. C. Suggestions are made for field use and evaluation of the fungus for mosquito control. Directions for media preparation and quality control are included.
