From: Transmission of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana to adults of Kuschelorhynchus macadamiae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) from infected adults and conidiated cadavers

The mortality of healthy adult weevils at 6 days, 9 days 12 days and 18 days post-introduction of (A) B27 conidiated cadaver and (B) ECS1 conidiated cadaver at different ratios inside an insect cage. Results of multifactorial “F1-LD-F1” non-parametric analyses: (A) Wald-type statistics (WTS) = 45.42, df = 4, P < 0.001 (for ratios), WTS = 413.89, df = 3, P < 0.001 (for measured times), WTS = 72.66, df = 12, P < 0.001 (for interactions), (B) WTS = 135.16, df = 4, P < 0.001 (for ratios), WTS = 107.64, df = 3, P < 0.001 (for measured times), WTS = 97.11, df = 12, P < 0.001 (for interactions). Columns with different letters are significantly different from each other (pairwise Wilcoxon rank-sum test, P < 0.05). (A,B) were analysed separately. Error bars represent standard errors.
