Laboratory tests were conducted to evaluate the efficacy of three diatomaceous earth (DE) formulations; Celite 209, DiaFil 610 and SilicoSec in three wheat varieties, Atilla-Gan-Atilla, Cetia and Seri M82, against Rhyzopertha dominica (F.). The DE formulations were applied at four dose rates; 250, 500, 750 and 1000 mg/kg. Bioassays were carried out at 26-34°C and at 32 …

[PDF] Diatomaceous Earth Increases the Efficacy of ...

The hypothesis that diatomaceous earth enhances the efficacy of B. bassiana against larval T. castaneum, at least in part by damaging the insect cuticle, thus increasing conidial attachment and making nutrients more available to conidia for their germination is supported. Abstract This research tested the suppressive ability of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) …
