Main Article Content
The aims of this article is to review biological control of entomopathogenic fungi, Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae and Verticillium lecanii and adhesive traps of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci, and the possibility of using them together in the future in order to control the reproduction of the whitefly B. tabaci. In order to reduce the resistance that the whitefly B. tabaci shows against chemical pesticides, many studies have been conducted related to controlling the whitefly B. tabaci by employing fungi, which do not leave any risks to living organisms or cause pollution in the environment. The whitefly B. tabaci, is one of the most destructive insect pests of vegetables. The wide spread of the whiteflies B. tabaci in the world allows it to transmit many diseases that greatly affect plants through the different phases of the life cycle below plant leaves,. Biological control using different concentrations of fungi Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium and anisopliae Verticillium lecanii was able to reduce their spread at the present time through the secretion of enzymes that significantly reduces the effectiveness of the whitefly B. tabaci, which is also greatly affected by temperature and relative humidity. The use of biopesticides and adhesive traps reduces whitefly B. tabaci damage significantly and does not leave negative effects on the environment. Therefore it is critical to develop a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to control B. tabaci through this proven and biologically sustainable method.
