From: Neem oil increases the persistence of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae for the control of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) larvae

Fig. 1

Survival rates of Aedes aegypti larvae following exposure to different treatments maintained under simulated field conditions for up to 50 days. The different suspensions/solutions were all prepared at the same time and larvae added to the pots at 5-day intervals. Time zero: larvae added to freshly prepared suspensions/solutions. Different letters show statistical differences (5% level) when comparing survival rates for each treatment at each time point using Duncan’s post hoc test. Abbreviations: F, Metarhizium anisopliae conidial suspensions (1 × 109 conidia ml-1); N, neem oil 1% (v/v)
