Abstract/Contents:Cardiac injection of spores of the insect pathogen, Bacillus popilliae, was performed on third instar larvae of Phyllophaga crinita (Burmeister). Of the larvae 77 percent became infected. A second experiment indicated that a hypodermic jet injection apparatus developed for use on man in unsuitable for innoculating P. crinita larvae with B. popilliae spores. A table listing the mortality and infection rates of third-instar Phyllophaga crinita with Bacillus popilliae spores suspension under pressure at various distances from the muzzle of the injection gum is also included.
