Abstract

In Japan, the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria brongniartii is grown in nonwoven fiber bands that are placed around trunks of orchard trees for control of numerous cerambycid pests, including Anoplophora chinensis (= A. malasiaca). The Japanese company producing bands, Nitto Denko in Osaka, markets bands produced from wood pulp. Our program has emphasized developing a method for biological control of Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) in the United States using similar fungal bands.
