Combined treatment with Beauveria bassiana, and diatomaceous earth (DE) was evaluated against the bean weevil Acanthoscelides obtectus and rice weevil Sitophilus oryzae . DE from Argentina was screened both alone or in combination with water or dry fungal formulations. DE killed 100% of A. obtectus and 68% of S. oryzae showing a significantly higher insecticidal effect than the fungal dust. For A. obtectus , median lethal time (MLT) with the DE–dry fungus was significantly lower than with a fungal aqueous-suspension. In S. oryzae, powder formulations with either of B. bassiana or DE showed a MLT significantly higher than the wet treatments.
