Abstract

This experiment was conducted in 2016, to investigate the effect of entomofungns Beauveria bassiana on different stages of Angoumois moth Sitotroga cerealella. The Results showed that eggs hatching percentage was zero % in three concentrations of fungus Beauveria bassiana, while in the control treatment was 96%. The average of larval mortality was 16.0 % in the concentration1×106 spore/ml and the lowest percentage Larval mortality was 3.0 % in control treatment. The lowest a verge of pupa emergence was 8.3% in concentration 1×106 spore /ml, while heighest in control was 96.3 %.The height mortality of adult percentage in the concentration 1× 106 spore /ml was 96.6 %, while in control treatment was 16.6 % after 96 hours at the fungus treatment.
