Bacteria active against Dipteran larvae — mosquitoes and blackflies — include a wide variety of Bacillus thuringiensis and Bacillus sphaericus strains, as well as isolates of Brevibacillus laterosporus and Clostridium bifermentans. All display different spectra and levels of activity correlated with the nature of the toxins produced during the sporulation process. This paper presents an overview of all mosquitocidal strains reported to date and describes the numerous toxins — including both Cry and Cyt proteins, and others — in terms of primary structure and activity against mosquito larvae.
