- ... Among tropical plant families, members of Annonaceae have great potential as a source of biopesticides. To develop an alternative tool for control of Helicoverpa armigera, efficacy of ethanolic extracts from seeds of five species belonging to the genus Annona (A. montana Macfad., A. mucosa Jacq., A. muricata L., A. reticulata L. and A. sylvatica A. St.-Hil.) and an acetogenin-based commercial bioi ...

- ... Resistance development in pest insects has guided the advance of cleaner and more effective strategies for pest control. An interesting and promising strategy is the manipulation of insects via their gut microbiota. To evaluate the feasibility of this strategy, Diabrotica speciosa, a highly polyphagous pest insect from South America that causes substantial damage to several important crops, was re ...
