Effect of Botanicals and Microbial Pesticides for Management of Wax Moth (Galleria mellonella L.) under Stored Condition
Different larval instars of Galleria mellonela were subjected to botanicals and microbial pesticides viz., dried neem leaf, neem oil 3 per cent, Bt kurstaki (Halt), Bt local strain-1 and Bt (Halt.) local strain-2, pongamia oil 3 per cent and NSKE 5 per cent. Among these Bt kurstaki and pongamia oil gave maximum larval mortality (93.33%) in both the cases. In case of Bt local strain-1&2, neem oil and NSKE 5 per cent gave intermediate comb protection and larval mortality.
