Abstract

Abstract Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Schroeter) Migula was isolated from the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria (Forskål), collected in the Nabisar area of West Pakistan in 1962. The bacterium designated as “strain CL” was identified by morphological and cultural characters. The median lethal dose for locusts was about 33 bacteria injected into the hemocoel, or about 21,000 bacteria ingested with the food. The bacterium was not infectious for rats by oral or subcutaneous routes.
