Abstract/Contents:"Laboratory studies were initiated to assay the efficacy of BioCide-TRF (Mycotrol GH-ES) Beauveria bassiana Vuill. on adults of the boxelder bug, Boisea trivittatus (Say), a nuisance pests of the family Rhopalidae. Adults and nymphs move through the turfgrass around their host trees (Acer spp.) and frequently take winter protection in and around urban and suburban domiciles. All adults of the boxelder bug exposed to treated leaves and seeds with the 1:100 dilution dose of Beauveria were killed within 7 d and 66.7% of the dead bugs expressed mycelia within 8 d. Significant mortality (88.3, 76.7 and 73.3%) of the adults, was also provided by the 1:300, 1:500 and 1:1,000 dilution rates, respectively. This strain of B. bassiana shows promise for control of this annual nuisance pest in the landscape."
