That is the case for different Gram-negative rods, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Burkholderia cepacia, as well as the Deuteromycete
fungus Aspergillus niger (Table 1), demonstrating that flora and fauna, including humans, represent not separate, independent worlds but two interacting sides of the same reality.

One such alternative for stem borer management is the entomopathogenic fungus (EPF) Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin, a deuteromycete
fungus which has major advantages for insect biological control, the reasons for interest in this fungus is its mode of infection, reproduction in target insects and safety to non-target organisms (Jianzhong Sun et al., 2003).
