Abstract:

A study was initiated to test the parasitism efficacy of Beauveria bassiana against larvae and pupae of melon fly Dacus frontalis for the pest bio-control. The melon fly larvae and pupae collected, in the period between 1/10/2013 to 1/6/2014, were transferred to lab.  Results revealed the mortality percentages caused by the fungus B. bassiana were higher in larvae than pupae. In addition the isolate BjH53 was better than the 5A-1isolate when mortality percentages were (1, 27.77 and 52.1) respectively for day treatments. Whereas, the mortality percentages were (29.9، 27.7and23.2) respectively for concentration treatments. The larvae mortality percentages were (1، 21 and 32.1) and (18.8، 16.6and18.8) for day and concentration treatments, respectively. No significant differences in mortality percentages for the same fungus and the OAC isolate between larvae and pupae. The pupal mortality percentages were (8.14،28.14 and 26.66) and (22.96، 20.73and19.25) for concentration and day treatments, respectively. While, the mortality percentages for larvae were (5.18، 17.03 and 29.62) and (15.55، 9.25and17.3) for concentration and day treatments, respectively days, respectively.
