Using biopesticides and reduced-risk pesticides for insect control in high tunnel vegetable production

Summary: Previous work by the PI has shown that if combined with the fungus Beauveria bassiana (Bb), diatomaceous earth may increase the efficacy of the fungal pathogen by causing slight fractures in the insect‘s integument and thereby increasing fungal infections. It is also important to determine if
