Table 3 The corrected mortalities of Callosobruchus maculatus, Trogoderma granarium and Tribolium castaneum adults treated with conidia of two Clonostachys rosea isolates. The conidial concentration of each entomopathogenic fungal isolate used for treatment was 1 × 106 conidia ml−1

  1. Values within a column followed by the same lowercase letters indicate no significant differences among insect species of both EPF isolates; values within a row followed by different uppercase letters indicate significant differences among days after treatment within each insect species and EPF isolate combination at P = 0 .05 using LSD test
