Abstract: Influence of eight pesticides that were commonly used in control of Solenopsis invicta, indoxacarb, spinosad, fenoxycarb, fipronil, boric acid, methoprene, abamectin, and beta-cypermethrin, on growth of Metarhizium spp. was investigated. Germination and growth of M. flavoviride SM076 were not inhibited by 0.1 mg/mL indoxacarb, 0.1 mg/mL pleocidin and 1.0 mg/mL methoprene, and 0.5 mg/mL indoxacarb, 0.1 mg/mL abamectin, 0.01 mg/mL fenoxycarb, 0.5 mg/mL methoprene and 0.05 mg/mL fipronil didn't show a negative impact on germination and growth of M. anisopLiae M09.
