    Description

    In recent years, there has been increased awareness in maintaining the quality of the environment. This has led to the development and use of microbial agents as alternatives to chemicals for controlling noxious insect populations. The insect pathogens in the family Baculoviridae, by virtue of their specificity, virulence, and safety for nontarget species, have become logical candidates in this regard, and several have been registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use in the United States (Martignoni, 1978; Lewis et al., 1979; Ignoffo and Couch, 1981). In fact, these viruses, as well as members of the Reoviridae, have been in general use for some time, in one form or another, throughout the world (Bedford, 1981; Cunningham and Entwistle, 1981; Katagiri, 1981; Falcon, 1982; Huber, 1982).
