Development of a new microbial insecticide
based on Chromobacterium subtsugae.
(2012) found Bacillus thuringiensis (0.2%) as a safer microbial insecticide
to Trichogramma chilonis.
Key word: Field populations Bactrocera zonata organophosphates pyrethorids microbial insecticide
resistant carbamate susceptible.
xylostella occurring in Southern Brazil has not acquired resistance to this microbial insecticide
, as reported by CASTELO BRANCO & GATEHOUSE (2001) in the Federal District, Brazil.
Targeting larvae is more desirable than controlling adults because the larvae are concentrated in a relatively small area; whatever microbial insecticide
adopted needs to be consumed by mosquito larva and must be applied well before the last larval instar stage (1).
A microbial insecticide
is sold under various names for grasshopper control.
The test was to study the effectiveness of the new microbial insecticide
This microbial insecticide
is generally toxic only to leaf-feeding caterpillars; the spray has no effect on adult butterflies and moths.

Research that improved microbial insecticide
formulations also led to environmentally friendly chemical formulations.
