    Abstract

    A brief history of the development of entomopathogens will be presented. Descriptions of unusual problems faced by researchers when formulating, stabilizing, and testing biological materials, specifically Bacillus thuringiensis formulations, will be presented. The importance of adjusting the physical and biological properties of a formulation for delivery to the target species will be discussed. Environmental aspects of the use of biological pesticides will be presented.
