Description

Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuill. (Bb), a fungal pathogen of the Colorado potato beetle has been used to control CPB in Europe. Preliminary studies in the United States gave promising results for CPB control by using the fungus. Based on these studies, a three-year pilot program was initiated to evaluate the potential for using Bb o control the Colorado potato beetle in the U.S. We report herein on the results obtained in southern Maine from using this mycoinsecticide to control the beetle.
