The cytolytic properties of the mosquitocidal 25 Kd protein deltaendotoxin of Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (Bti) was studied using the human erythrocyte as a target cell. Both a fixedtime and a kinetic hemolytic bioassay were developed in order to screen a variety of treatments for their influence on the toxinerythrocyte...
The importance of pheromones in insect control relies both on
their ability to reduce pest populations and on their relatively benign
effects on nontarget organisms. This study was conducted to test the
effectiveness of a pheromone application for mating disruption of the
ponderosa pine tip moth, Rhyacionia zozana (Kearfott), and...
Levels of resistance to six selected insecticides of
eleven field populations of the filbert aphid Mvzocallis
coryli (Goetze) were determined by using the leaf-dip
residue technique. Test insecticides included compounds
widely used in commercial filbert orchards, namely,
carbaryl, diazinon, endosulfan, phosalone, fenvalerate and
oxydemetonmethyl. Aphid samples were collected within a...
