Biocontrol potential of a Bacillus subtilis strain against Bactrocera oleae

Abstract: Within the Mediterranean basin, pest infestation of the olive tree especially by Bactrocera oleae is a serious economic problem. In this study, we have isolated 115 bacterial strains from various ecological niches, and tested their ability to protect the olive fruits against Bactrocera oleae. Among these strains, culture supernatant (CS) of one bacterial strain displayed the highest rate of larval mortality, and was identified as Bacillus subtilis by 16S rRNA molecular analysis. Further characterization of the… Show more

“…P. aeruginosa oxyR mutant revealed its ability to kill the insect Drosophila melanogaster (Lau et al, 2003). P. aeruginosa strain confers an efficient protection against Galleria mellonella and Batocera oleae (George et al, 2000;Mostakim et al, 2012) and the potency was due to the presence of quantitatively as well as qualitatively different proportions of bio-surfactants in the crude glycolipids (Desai and Banat, 1997). B. subtilis, B. amylofaciens, B. megaterium and Pseudomonas spp.…”
