Mosquitoes and black flies are a constant threat to health and comfort, yet the modern chemical pesticides used to control them have cre ated serious ecological problems. Populations of resistant mosquitoes and black flies have evolved, beneficial insects and natural predators have been destroyed. Adult mosquitoes and black flies are responsible for the transmission of disease-causing agents of humans, and animals and they can lower the quality of life through their blood feeding activities.

The contributors here assess recent research on B.t.i. and B. sphaericus and their effects on the larvae of mosquitoes and black flies, discussing the nature and genetics of the bacteria's parasporal bodies, the cloning of toxic genes, attempts to transfer genes for the endotoxins to larval foodsources, commercial use to combat diseases Author: De Barjac, Huguette. Abstract. For centuries man has attempted to control mosquitoes in order to protect himself from mosquito borne diseases and annoyance. The control of mosquitoes using microbial control agents like Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (Bti)and Bacillus sphaericus (Bsp) offer man a means to serve all of his interests, protect himself from mosquitoes and protect nature reserves by taking Cited by: The microbial control of mosquitoes and black flies is a very important, rapidly developing area of science. Entomologists and microbiologists have already achieved spectacular successes using B. tburingiensis and B. spbaericus against these pests. Recent discoveries of new bacterial isolates specific to new hosts and recent genetic Format: Taschenbuch.

Bacterial Control of Mosquitoes & Black Flies | Mosquitoes and black flies are a constant threat to health and comfort, yet the modern chemical pesticides used to control them have cre- ated serious ecological problems. Populations of resistant mosquitoes and black flies have evolved, beneficial insects and natural predators have been destroyed, and environmental pollution has increased worldwide. CHAPTER III-2 Bacteria: Laboratory bioassay of bacteria against aquatic insects with emphasis on larvae of mosquitoes and black flies LAWRENCE A. LACEY Yakima Agricultural Research Laboratory, USDA-ARS, Konnowac Pass Road, Wapato, WA , USA. 1 INTRODUCTION The insect families Culicidae (mosquitoes) and Simuliidae (black flies) contain some of the most medically important Cited by: Only the larval stage is targeted for suppression using microbial control agents. All stages of immature black flies (egg, larvae, and pupae) are found in lotic habitats. Eggs are deposited on the water’s surface or on rocks of the larval habitat, trailing vegetation or other objects just Cited by: 1.
