Susceptibility of the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, to the fungal pathogen Hirsutella thompsonii Fisher


, : Susceptibility of the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, to the fungal pathogen Hirsutella thompsonii Fisher. Florida Entomologist 65(4): 458-465

In laboratory bioassays in Georgia, USA, the susceptibility was determined of Tetranychus urticae Koch to Hirsutella thompsonii thompsonii, a fungus pathogenic to eriophyids (notably Phyllocoptruta oleivora (Ashm.)) and to 6 tetranychids. Direct placing of fungal conidia on to mites placed on leaf discs cut from Phaseolus vulgaris and floated on distilled water in covered petri dishes gave an average mortality of 96.5%.

Though negative symptoms in schizophrenia are associated with a host of deleterious outcomes (e.g., White et al., 2009), not all individuals with schizophrenia suffer from negative symptoms (e.g., Blanchard et al., 2005). Thus, methods to quickly...
