Biocontrol of Egyptian leaf worm using some fungal secondary products.
Three entomopathogenic fungal metabolites from Beauveria bassiana, Paecilomyces fumosoroseus and Metarhizium anisopliae were used as a biocontrol agents against Spodoptera littoralis as an Egyptian cotton leaf worm. The entomopathogenic fungi were inoculated in suitable nutrient medium to produce the effective metabolites. The obtained metabolites were tested against the investigated worm. The results indicated that fungal metabolites induce virulent against the tested worm. This study will enable the egyptian farmers to get rid of dangerous action of this worm using some naturally isolated biological metabolites instead of synthetic chemical compound which have multi-dangerous effects on the environments.
