Abstract

In this study, Entomopathogenic fungi Perlomyces chlamidosporia, Fusarium subglutinans, Fusarium solani, Baveria bassiana were investigated to the effect of larvae great wax moth Galleria mellonella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae). P. chlamidosporia, F. solani, two isolates of F subglutinans (8, 12), and B. bassiana were cultured for 10 days potato dextrose agar (PDA) medium and incubated in dark conditions at 25 ± 1 ºC. 1x107 spor / ml suspension for each isolates was used for each isolates and Tween 20 was added in. By dipping method suspensions of spore were experimented on Larvae of G. mellonella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae). Larvae of G. mellonella were cultured in 12-cm plastic petrie dishes at 25 ± 1 0C. 1, 24, 48 hours and 8, 13 days after the applications were eveluated the death larvae of G. mellonella. The mortality rate of G. mellonella was observed between 50-70% but statistical difference between isolates was not determined. The results obtained in the application used the types of Entomopathogenic fungus can be used biological control for G. mellonella.
