formulated fungi B. bassiana and M. anisopliae at the concentrations of 0.12 x 10 6conidia /g, 0.22 x 10 6 conidia /g, 0.32 x 10 6 conidia / g, and 0.42 x 10 6 conidia /g. M. anisopliae was more effective against tested insects than B. bassiana. Four concentrations of B. bassiana were tested against R. dominica, S. oryzae and O. surinamensis. LC50 were 1.2 x 10 5 conidia / g, 1.6 x 10 5 conidia / g and 1.4 x 10 5conidia / g, respectively. The same concentrations M. anisopliae were tested against R. dominica, S. oryzae and O. surinamensis. LC50 were 2.7 x 10 5 conidia / g, 1.3 x 10 5 conidia / g, and 3.5 x 10 5 conidia / g, respectively." />

The present work was evaluation of the efficacy of the entomopathogenic fungi, Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae on Rhyzopertha dominica, Sitophilus oryzae and Oryzaephilus surinamensis. Each insect species lass="GINGER_SOFTWARE_mark">formulated fungi B. bassiana and M. anisopliae at the concentrations of 0.12 x 10 6conidia /g, 0.22 x 10 6 conidia /g, 0.32 x 10 6 conidia / g, and 0.42 x 10 6 conidia /g. M. anisopliae was more effective against tested insects than B. bassiana. Four concentrations of B. bassiana were tested against R. dominica, S. oryzae and O. surinamensis. LC50 were 1.2 x 10 5 conidia / g, 1.6 x 10 5 conidia / g and 1.4 x 10 5conidia / g, respectively. The same concentrations M. anisopliae were tested against R. dominica, S. oryzae and O. surinamensis. LC50 were 2.7 x 10 5 conidia / g, 1.3 x 10 5 conidia / g, and 3.5 x 10 5 conidia / g, respectively.
