Caption

Biological pest control. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a maybug, or cockchafer, larva (Melolontha melolontha, orange) destroyed by a fungal pesticide (green). The fungus has eaten away at the larva's head. One antenna can be seen at upper right, with the larva's mandibles at upper centre. Biological pest control such as this is used where crops are sensitive to chemical agents, or in areas where chemical agents are not used because of their potential damage to the ecosystem. The fungus does not affect the crops. Magnification: x15 at 6x7cm size.
