Entomopathogenicity of Metarhizium anisopliae and some fungi toward the filbert aphid, Myzocallis coryli Goetze (Hemiptera: Aphididae)
Onur Aker and Samet Hasan Abaci
The Filbert Aphid is one of the pests of hazelnut growing area of Turkey. This study was carried out all fungal isolates caused significant mortality against third instar nymphs of filbert aphid after 3, 6 and 10 days of conidial treatments at 18, 22 and 25 Â°C temperatures under laboratory conditions. The results showed that third instar nymphs of M. coryli
were more susceptible to the entomopathogenic fungi at 25 Â°C than 18 Â°C. M. anisopliae
was highly and statically equally effective against nymphs of M. coryli
at 18, 22 and 25 Â°C (80,8%, 93,8%, 100%) after 10 days of conidial treatment. The other isolates; TR-05 and TR-78.07 werenâ€™t so effective as M. anisopliae
on nymphs of M. coryli at 25 Â°C (67,8 and 62,6%). This study showed that isolate of M. anisopliae
has virulent and highly potential for biological control on nymphs of Myzocallis coryli.
