Abstract in Portuguese
Estudou-se em condições de laboratório, a potencialidade dos fungos Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill., Beauveria brongniartii (Sacc.) Peth e Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) Sorok. para o controle do cupim subterrâneo Heterotermes tenuis (Hagen, 1858), importante praga da cana-de-açúcar no Brasil. Foram testados 134 isolados de Beauveria bassiana, 8 isolados de Beauveria brongniartii e dois isolados de Metarhizium anisopliae. O isolado selecionado foi o 634 de B. bassiana por ter causado 90% de mortalidade em H. tenuis e boa esporulação em diversos meios de cultura e sobre o inseto teste. Determinou-se também que o inseticida imidacloprid pode ser associado com o fungo B. bassiana nas formulações conídio puro, pasta de arroz e micélio seco, nas armadilhas de papelão especialmente selecionadas para essa finalidade. Verificou-se também que o fungo B. bassiana pode ser transmitido para outros indivíduos sadios de uma população de H. tenuis.
Title in English
Evaluation of entomopathogenic fungi for controlling the subterranean termite Heterotermes tenuis (HAGEN, 1858) (Isoptera, Rhinotermitidae)
Abstract in English
The potentiality of the fungi Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill., B. brongniartii (Sacc.) Peth. and Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) Sorok. was studied under laboratory conditions, for the control of the subterranean termite Heterotermes tenuis (Hagen, 1858) which is an important sugarcane pest in Brazil. 134 isolates of B. bassiana, 8 of B. brongniartii and 2 of M. anisopliae were tested. The isolate 634 of B. bassiana was selected for its high virulence (90% of mortality of H. tenuis) as well as for its good sporulation on several culture media and on the insect test. As to the cardboard traps for the termites it was observed that the insecticide imidacloprid may be associated with the fungus B. bassiana in the formulations pure conidia, rice paste and dry mycelium. It was observed that the fungus B. bassiana may be transmitted to other healthy individuaIs of a population of H. tenuis.
