Microbial Control of Insect Pests with Entomopathogenic Fungi in China : A Decade’s Progress in Research and Utilization

  • Ming-Guang Feng
Chapter

Abstract

More than 700 species of fungi are associated with insect diseases, and thus called entomopathogenic fungi (Pu and Li, 1996). Those with potential to be utilized for control of insect pests usually fall within two group: Hyphomycetes in Deuteromycotina and Entomophthorales in Zygomycotina (Feng, 1998a). Of those, however, only a very few number of species have been studied intensively for microbial control of various insect pests. Over the past decade a great progress has been made worldwide in the development of entomopathogenic hyphomycetes into commercially registered mycoinsecticides. Recently registered products include various formulations of Beauveria bassiana, B. brongniartii, Metarhizium anisopliae, Nomuraea rileyi, Paecilomyces fumosoroseus, and Verticillium lecanii, which are used to control a wide range of insect pests such as homopterans, coleopterans, lepidopterans, orthopterans, and dipterans (Shah and Goettel, 1999). Techniques involved in mass production, formulation, and application of fungal agents have greatly advanced worldwide and reviewed recently by numerous authors (Burges, 1998; Caudwell and Gatehouse, 1996; Cliquet and Jackson, 1997; Hedgecock et al., 1995; Ibrahim et al., 1999; Jackson et al., 1997; Kleespies and Zimmermann, 1998; Lacey and Goettel, 1995; Lacey and Kaya, 2000; Milner, 1997; Wraight and Carruthers, 1999).
