The synergistic effect between the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium robertsii and a sublethal dose of the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. morrisoni var. tenebrionis was studied in terms of immune defense reactions and detoxification system activity of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata, fourth instar larvae. Bacterial infection led to more rapid germination of fungal conidia on integuments. We found a significant decrease of cellular immunity parameters, including total hemocyte count and encapsulation response, under the influence of bacteria. Phenoloxidase activity in integuments was increased under bacteriosis, mycosis and combined infection compared to controls. However, phenoloxidase activity in the hemolymph was enhanced under bacteriosis alone, and it was decreased under combined infection. Activation of both nonspecific esterases and glutathione-S-transferases in the hemolymph was shown at the first day of mycosis and third day of bacteriosis. However, ...
INTRODUCTION. In Brazil, sugarcane monoculture forms the basis of the sugar export and biofuel industries (Alves et al., 2008). The root spittlebug Mahanarva fimbriolata (Stal) (Hemiptera: Cercopidae) causes serious economic damage to this crop in regions where harvesting is mechanized, especially in the Southeast and in some states of the Midwest and Northeast (Dinardo-Miranda et al., 2006). This necessitates to develop the efficient ways to control this pest. Biological control of the spittlebug using the fungus Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin may provide an alternative to the use of chemical insecticides. Additional benefits of using this particular pathogen are that it is also active against the borer Diatraea saccharalis (Fabricius) but does not affect some of the natural enemies of the spittlebug such as the wasp Salpingogaster nigra (Schiner) and predator ant Pheidole genalis (Borgmeier) (Mendonça and Mendonça, 2005).. Several studies have been conducted that focus on the ...
Metarhizium anisopliae is a fungus that grows naturally in soils throughout the world and causes disease in various insects by acting as a parasite. It is considered to be a soil-borne insect pathogen.. Todds current research is focusing on the effect of Metarhizium anisopliae seed treatment to increase the yield of field corn. Research to date has shown consistent increases in yield as high as 20%. For example, without Metarhizium seed treatment, there was a 60% yield on a field infected with wireworm; with Metarhizium seed treatment, there was a 80% yield. The Metarhizium seed treatment performed as well as Poncho - a currently used chemical seed treatment.. The reason for this increase in yield is likely due to the Metarhizium fungus acting as a repellant to wireworms, although this is still under investigation. The next step in this research is to carry out experiments in the lab to determine if the Metarhizium fungus was actually acting as a wireworm repellant. If not, then other factors ...

Biopesticides include fungi, bacteria, neem extract and pheromones. The effectiveness of many biopesticides equals that of conventional chemical pesticides, but there are two distinct differences. Biopesticides in general take longer to kill insects, plant diseases, or weeds, usually between 2 and 10 days. There are two types of biopesticides - biochemical and microbial. Biochemical pesticides are similar to naturally occurring chemicals and are nontoxic, such as insect pheromones used to locate mates, while microbial biopesticides, come from bacteria, fungi, algae or viruses that either occur naturally or are genetically altered. Entomopathogenic fungi generally suppress pests by mycosis: causing a disease that is specific to the insect. Biological control products have been under development since the late nineties; Green Muscle and NOVACRID are based on a naturally occurring entomopathogenic fungus (i.e. insects-infecting fungus), Metarhizium acridum. Species of Metarhizium are widespread ...
The objectives of this study were to determine the efficacy of a curative drench application of M. anisopliae for controlling black vine weevil (BVW) larval infestations in container-grown nursery plants and the effect of temperature on the rate of fungal growth and speed of kill.

The effectiveness of chemical pesticides to control locust swarms has been limited, at best, due to the swarms quick pace and size, along with limited resources as these nations and foreign donors focus on COVID-19. Thus, it fell to the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE), an international research institute housed in Nairobi, Kenya, to devise more innovative and environmentally friendly means of tackling the locust problem. One approach has been the use of a biopesticide developed from the Metarhizium acridum fungus, which has proven to be deadly to locusts while not harming other insects. Commercial brands use this kind of fungus in their powder products. Such powders are mixed with oil and sprayed onto fields from planes or trucks. The fungus then penetrates the locusts hard outer layer and starts feeding on the insect, sapping away Another tactic homes in on locust pheromones, disrupting their biochemistry to break up swarms before they form and encouraging ...

Hello, Im Thomas Locke and this is Five Minutes, the podcast that brings you closer to the malaria experts.. A new study has found that fungus, genetically enhanced to produce spider toxin, can kill a large-number of malaria-carrying mosquitos. This novel approach is known as transgenic control, where genes from one organism are put into another. The research was led by entomologists at the University of Maryland. Brian Lovett is one of the authors of the paper.. I began by asking him why the Metarhizium fungi was chosen as the host for the toxin.. Metarhizium is something that we have been studying in our lab for decades and that science has been studying for centuries. This is a very well understood, very well known and useful fungal pathogen of insects. Regarding using the toxin from the spider, we have collaborators at the University of Queensland, in particular, Glenn King, who characterises these arthropod toxins very intricately. We know, not only that its specific to insects, but we ...

A cukorbetegség, magas vércukorszint, dohányzás, magas koleszterinszint (LDL) és magas vérnyomás - a szív és érrendszer rizikófaktorai - nem csak a vérkeringés őssejtjeinek mennyiségét csökkentik jelentősen, hanem károsítják a meglévő őssejtek működőképességét is. Ezért egyszerű saját őssejt szám fokozással nem lehet jelentős eredményeket elérni. Pl. a szívkoszorúér betegség esetében a magasabb őssejt számmal rendelkezők (EPC) halálozási aránya nem kedvezőbb, annak ellenére, hogy közülük szívbetegségben kevesebben halnak meg. Náluk más problémákból fakadó halálozási arányok lesznek magasabbak. Már említettük az antidepresszáns gyógyszerek agyi őssejt fokozó hatását.

Goldstein és Brown 1968-ban a National Institutes of Health-nél (NIH) kezdték kutatói tevékenységüket. Goldstein a biokémiai és genetikai laboratóriumban Marshall Nirenberg (aki éppen abban az évben kapott Nobel-díjat) alatt dolgozott és a öröklődő magas koleszterinszint (familiáris hiperkoleszterolémia) genetikai hátterét tanulmányozta. Ez a genetikai betegség minden ötszáz ember közül egyben fordul elő, 4-8-szoros koleszterinszinttel, érelmeszesedéssel és magas szívinfarktus-kockázattal jár. Azok, akik homozigóták a hibás génre, szinte minden esetben szívrohamban haltak meg még harmincéves koruk előtt. 1970-ben kétéves ösztöndíjjal a seattle-i Washingtoni Egyetemre érkezett, ahol a magas vérzsírszinttel járó betegségek genetikai hátterével foglalkozott. 1972-ben visszatért Dallasba, ahol megkapta az újonnan létrehozott orvosgenetikai részleg vezetését. Brown ekkor már egy éve szintén a Texasi Egyetemen dolgozott és közösen ...

ABSTRACTAphids are regarded as one of the most important pest problems of vegetable crops worldwide. Most vegetable growers in sub-Saharan Africa heavily rely on chemical insecticides for control of aphids. However, the synthetic insecticided have detrimental effects on users, consumers and the environment. Fungal-based biopesticides are being considered as alternatives to synthetic chemical insecticides. This study evaluated the virulence of five isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) Sorok. and three of Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill. against apterous adults of Brevicoryne brassicae (L.), Lipaphis pseudobrassicae (Davis) and Aphis gossypii (Glover). The thermotolerance and conidial yield of the isolates were also evaluated as a prerequisite for strain selection. Three isolates of M. anisopliae ICIPE 30, ICIPE 62 and ICIPE 69 outperformed the other fungal isolates, causing mortality of 85-98%, 83-97%, and 73-77%, in B. brassicae, L. pseudobrassicae and A. gossypii, respectively, 7 d ...
Heat and cold are environmental abiotic factors that restrict the use of entomopathogenic fungi as agents for biological control of insects. The thermotolerance and cold activity of 60 entomopathogenic fungal isolates, including five species of Beauveria and one isolate of Engyodontium albus (=Beauveria alba) were examined as to tolerance of temperatures that might be encountered during field use. In addition, cold activity of eight Metarhizium spp. isolates was evaluated. The isolates were from various geographic regions, arthropod hosts or substrates. High variability in conidial thermotolerance was found among the Beauveria spp. isolates after exposure to 45 degrees C for 2 h, as evidenced by low (0-20%), medium (20-60%), or high germination (60-80%). The thermal death point (0% germination) for three rather thermotolerant B. bassiana isolates (CG 138, GHA and ARSEF 252) was 46 degrees C for 6 h. At low temperatures (5 degrees C), with few exceptions (e.g. CG 66, UFPE 479, CG 227, CG 02), most of the
September 19, 2006. How sweet it is! Scientists with the Agricultural Research Service in Sidney, Mont., may have found a natural alternative to the copious pesticides that sugar beet growers must spray on fields to fend off their biggest enemy: the sugar beet root maggot.. Stefan Jaronski, an insect pathologist who works at the ARS Northern Plains Agricultural Research Laboratory in Sidney, has discovered that a strain of the biocontrol fungus Metarhizium anisopliae is not only effective at killing the maggot, but is also a vigorous colonizer that can adapt quickly to its new environment. Jaronskis research builds on initial biocontrol efforts by ARS scientists at Fargo, N.D., during the 1990s.. Even though the fungus is a newcomer to sugar beet soils, its quite capable of holding its own among the hundreds of other microbes already established there. The maggot is certainly worthy of a unique control strategy. This subterranean pest gnaws on young sugar beet roots, inflicting deep wounds ...

Temperature is a critical determinant of the development of malaria parasites in mosquitoes, and hence the geographic distribution of malaria risk, but little is known about the thermal preferences of Anopheles. A number of other insects modify their thermal behaviour in response to infection. These alterations can be beneficial for the insect or for the infectious agent. Given current interest in developing fungal biopesticides for control of mosquitoes, Anopheles stephensi were examined to test whether mosquitoes showed thermally-mediated behaviour in response to infection with fungal entomopathogens and the rodent malaria, Plasmodium yoelii. Over two experiments, groups of An. stephensi were infected with one of three entomopathogenic fungi, and/or P. yoelii. Infected and uninfected mosquitoes were released on to a thermal gradient (14 - 38°C) for snapshot assessments of thermal preference during the first five days post-infection. Mosquito survival was monitored for eight days and, where
Termites (order Isoptera) comprise over 2,700 species and are of global importance as decomposers of lignocellulose material (Kambhampati and Eggleton, 2000; König et al ., 2006) . Over 80% of the approximately 183 economically important termite species are subterranean termites, with the genus Coptotermes accounting for the largest number (28) of pest species (Su and Scheffrahn, 1998). In the United States, the need for control of the native Eastern subterranean termite (Reticulitermes flavipes) and the invasive Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus) supports a multimillion-dollar pest control industry (Su and Scheffrahn, 1998) The cost of control and repairs due to subterranean termite damage is estimated at over $2 billion per year in the United States alone (Culliney and Grace, 2000) .. Subterranean termites rely on beneficial symbioses with a diverse microbial flora in their guts to aid in digestion of lignocellulosic compounds in wood, which are their sole source of ...

A previously undescribed anaerobic, heterofermentative, non-spore-forming, Gram-positive rod was isolated from the hindgut of the Formosan subterranean termite Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki. The DNA G+C content of this bacterium was 37·8 mol%. Sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA gene revealed that this organism is related to, but distinct from, several genera of lactic acid bacteria, principally several species of the genus Enterococcus. Phenotypic traits that serve to separate this organism from related genera include high levels of the cellular fatty acid C18 : 1ω9c and the production of ethanol along with lactic acid as fermentation products. Based on the collected phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence, it is proposed that the unknown organism represents a novel species in a new genus, Pilibacter termitis gen. nov., sp. nov. The type strain is TI-1T (=ATCC BAA-1030T=CCUG 49613T).

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Formosan (subterranean) soldier termite (Coptotermes formosanus). The Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus) is a subterranean termite in the family Rhinotermitidae. It is an invasive species of termite and has been distributed worldwide from its native range in southern China to Japan. The Formosan subterranean termite (FST) is know as the super-termite because of its destructive habits. It produces large sized colonies, and the termites can consume wood at a very rapid rate. A single colony may contain several million individuals that forage up to 300 yards in soil. Due to its population size and foraging range the presence of a colony poses serious threats to nearby structures.

Beauveria bassiana is a fungal entomopathogen with the ability to colonize plants endophytically. As an endophyte, B. bassiana may play a role in protecting plants from herbivory and disease. This protocol demonstrates two inoculation methods to establish B. bassiana endophytically in the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), in preparation for subsequent evaluations of endophytic biological control. Plants are grown from surface-sterilized seeds for two weeks before receiving a B. bassiana treatment of 108 conidia/ml (or water) applied either as a foliar spray or a soil drench. Two weeks later, the plants are harvested and their leaves, stems and roots are sampled to evaluate endophytic fungal colonization. For this, samples are individually surface sterilized, cut into multiple sections, and incubated in potato dextrose agar media for 20 days. The media is inspected every 2-3 days to observe fungal growth associated with plant sections and record the occurrence of B. bassiana to estimate the ...

Applications of Metarhizium brunneum Petch (Ascomycota: Hypocreales: Clavicipitaceae) isolate LRC112 conidia caused high mortality to Agriotes obscurus L. (Coleoptera: Elateridae) click beetles in field trials. Banded conidiated rice (4.4 × 1014 conidia ha−1) and conidia dust (5.0 × 1013 conidia ha−1) resulted in 93.3 % ± 7.3 and 91.3 % ± 3.0 mortality after 18 days, while aqueous conidia suspension spray (5.0 × 1013 conidia ha−1) with and without 80 g ha−1 spinosad resulted in 68.2 % ± 17.7 and 52.6 % ± 17.4 mortality. Differences in results between 2012 and 2013 were attributed to rainfall, with pronounced effects in 2012 (rain beginning 35 h post treatment) and minimal effects in 2013 (rain beginning at 4 h). In another field experiment, beetles dosed with 1.49 × 107 ± 5.08 × 106 conidia per beetle retained 4.6 % of conidia after seven days while conidia viability on beetle bodies remained unchanged. The results inferred opportunities for controlling click beetles using ...
Aims: The genetic diversity of Beauveria bassiana was investigated by comparing isolates of this species to each other (49 from different geographical regions of Brazil and 4 from USA) and to other Beauveria spp. Methods and Results: The isolates were examined by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE), amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), and rDNA sequencing. MLEE and AFLP revealed considerable genetic variability among B. bassiana isolates. Several isolates from South and Southeast Brazil had high similarity coefficients, providing evidence of at least one population with clonal structure. There were clear genomic differences between most Brazilian and USA B. bassiana isolates. A Mantel test using data generated by AFLP provided evidence that greater geographical distances were associated with higher genetic distances. AFLP and rDNA sequencing demonstrated notable genotypic variation between B. bassiana and other Beauveria spp. Conclusion: Geographical distance between populations
The OBS was baited with a synthetic mosquito lure, a blend consisting of carboxylic acids, ammonia and carbon dioxide. This lure was recently developed at Ifakara Health Institute [6, 8]. To reduce costs and ensure ease of handling, one constituent of the synthetic lure, industrial CO2 gas was replaced with organic CO2, made from a cocktail of bakers yeast and sugar [9, 10]. The mixture was prepared at least one hour before commencing the experiment to ensure that the yeast-sugar digestion process was already ongoing when the experiment started. The CO2 apparatus consisted of two separate plastic pots each having 500 grams of sugar and 3 litres water. Each pot contained a different amount of bakers yeast i.e. 80 g and 150 g of respectively. The yeast-sugar suspension inside both pots was adequately stirred before the pots were placed inside the OBS. This two-pot system, initially described by Saito et al [9] ensures a continuous supply of sufficient CO2 gas throughout the night. For the ...
Hydrophobins are small, cysteine-rich, secreted proteins, ubiquitously produced by filamentous fungi, and that are speculated to function in fungal growth, cell surface properties, and development, although this has been rigorously tested for only a few species. We identified three hydrophobin genes from the entomopathogenic fungus, Metarhizium brunneum and provided functional characterization of strains lacking these genes. One gene (HYD1/ssgA) encodes a Class I hydrophobin identified previously. Two new genes, HYD3 and HYD2, encode a Class-I and Class-II hydrophobin, respectively. To examine function, we deleted all three, separately, from the M. brunneum strain KTU-60 genome using Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation. Deletion strains were screened for alterations in developmental phenotypes including growth, sporulation, pigmentation, colony surface properties, and virulence to insects. All deletion strains were reduced in their ability to sporulate and showed alterations in ...
We continue to be an industry leader in termite control through how we treat termites, customer service, innovative treatments, and results.
A: The western subterranean termites are common in Central Oregon. Unfortunately, I cannot answer your question as there are different ways to manage for termites and some take longer than others. I do not know what type of management the company you worked with used. Here is a great article that walks you through some very common questions: Termite Control: Answers for Homeowners. I would recommend you read through all of it, but in the middle of the page they discuss the two most common types of control and how they work. Non-repellants and baits. Find out what kind your exterminator used. Once you know what kind of control was used, you may also want to call a few other exterminators to confirm how that particular type of control works. Here is an additional article: Frequently Asked Questions about Subterranean Termite Control ...
Our results show that colonies of R. virginicus undergo AQS as described previously in the Japanese subterranean termite, R. speratus [4]. As is typical of subterranean termites, colonies of both R. speratus and R. virginicus are founded by monogamous pairs of primary reproductives [1,19,20], but at some point, relatively early in the colony life cycle, the primary queen is replaced by her parthenogenetically produced neotenic daughters. These female neotenics then mate with either a primary or a secondary king to produce workers, soldier and alates through sexual reproduction. The fact that our colonies of R. virginicus came from opposite ends of its distribution (North Carolina and Texas) indicates that such a system is widespread in this species.. As described previously [4], there are many advantages of AQS over a system of queen replacement involving normal sexual production of female neotenics. First, by producing numerous secondary replacement queens, the queen is able to increase her ...
