- ... The entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae is virulent for the insect triatomine Meccus pallidipennis. To evaluate the functionality of a fungal formulation (vegetable oil and emulsifiers) of this fungus, virulence was assayed by insect mortality on the pronotum of third instar nymphs (N3) M. pallidipennis in laboratory conditions and ST₅₀ was calculated. Mortality was evaluated directly: ...
