Diseases of pests relevant to biological control

This group includes microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi, nematodes or microsporidia used (or with a potential) for the microbial control of harmful insects and other pests (arthropods and vertebrates). Most organisms listed are infectious diseases which propagate in the pests. Literature records might include articles dealing with recombinant strains.
