In the laboratory, the fungus Metarrhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin infected 6.7% of the adults and none of the larvae of the so-called sugarcane rootstalk borer weevil, Diaprepres abbreviatus (L.). In contrast, Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin infected 92.7% of the adults within 7 days and 76.9% of the larvae within 12 days.
