Use of Insect Parasitic in Pest Control
Numerous useful microorganisms are present in the environment and they also do a fair work of controlling diseases. Biological control is done by the use of these valuable microorganisms.
Some nematode species that grow in the body of insects and kill them are called nematode entamopathogenic nematodes (EPNs). The cycle of insect control by this method is close to that of fungi. Insectivorous nematodes are slightly larger in size than nematodes that cause crop damage. Many species in the pesticide category, such as heterorabditis, sternerma, photorabiditis, enter the body of the insect and kill the insect.
With the help of congenital bacteria such as Genorabdis, organisms such as Stenernema help to control pests efficiently. Upon entering the body, the cells grow rapidly and the whole body becomes infected. The bug dies within 3 to 5 days. Ants, via carcasses, return to search for new host pests, and then continue to kill other pests.
It can be used by spraying according to the formulations available. Rapid effects could be seen when insects are used in an easy way to get in contact with the body. Can also be given with drip in soil or mixed with organic manure to come in contact with ground based kits like termites. Also, because of its use, termites, rhinoceros beetle found in coconut, coral damage in coconut crop, banana root weevil, grape-mango orange horticultural crop, truncator, American legume, leaf-eating trunk, sundries that eat the roots of the tree from the bottom, vegetable foliage or fruit borers monitor pests from such different classes of kite-class Sundays.
