Effect of the Fungal Pathogens, Erynia Spp., On the Alfalfa Weevil, Hypera Postica, and the Parasite, Bathyplectes Curculionis Thomson

Goh, Doreen Kim Soh
Abstract
Since 1983, high mortality of the alfalfa weevil larvae, prepupae, and to a smaller proportion, pupae, due to infection by the fungal pathogens, Erynia spp., has been observed in Oklahoma. These studies were conducted to determine the extent of mortality of the alfalfa weevil due to infection by Erynia spp. on a seasonal basis and to determine the effect of fungal disease on parasitism by Bathyplectes curculionis.
