Management of Thrips and Whiteflies with Insect-Killing Fungi- Impact of Spray Technology


Insect-killing fungi to control thrips and whiteflies


Methods of plant protection in the floral industry are undergoing major changes as many of the “standard” pesticides are withdrawn from the market. Insect killing fungi are an important new weapon in the IPM arsenal, but information describing their effective use is needed. In these studies, we tested two “off the shelf” sprayers for application of the fungus Beauveria bassiana for control of western flower thrips on chrysanthemum and silverleaf whitefly on poinsettia.
