Abstract:

Aphid's species is one of the most important insect pests which threaten most of crops in Gaza strip such as Mentha, Citrus, Rosa, Almond, Pomegranate, Fruits and most species of flowers. It has a rapid reproduction which cause a serious damage. Aphids' species are one of the main targets of Beauvaria bassiana which is used as safe prospects for the biological control of this pest. This study was carried out to find safer and environment solutions for pest's management by using entomopathogenic fungi (EPF) (B. Bassiana). Spores of B. bassiana which is used as biological control agent in this study using Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA) media and liquid fermentation techniques. B. Bassiana fungus killed all adult aphids by 95%-97% compare to chemical treatment 50%.


Keywords: Aphids, Entomopathogenic fungi, Beauvaria bassiana, biological control, Gaza Strip.
