Use of drugs to reduce Perezia pyraustae infections in the European corn borer



Use of drugs to reduce Perezia pyraustae infections in the European corn borer



Proc. N. cent. Brch Am. Ass. econ. Ent, 24: pt. 2, 84-87



The following is virtually the authors' abstract. Furoxone (furazolidone), atabrine hydrochloride, chloroquine phosphate, quinine sulfate and Fumidil-B (bicyclo-hexylammonium fumagillin) were added to the wheat-germ diet used to rear Ostrinia nubilalis (Hb.) in Iowa in attempts to eliminate Perezia pyraustae from laboratory colonies. All the drugs were ineffective except Fumidil-B, which essentially eliminated the spores from the treated larvae.
