Researchers at Swansea University in Wales are hopeful that they have developed a fungus that could kill vine weevil larvae and western flower thrips. If successful, the fungus could be a natural, green alternative to harmful pesticides and could save money, researchers say. The fungus has proven effective in various tests. "The benefits are far-reaching -- not just for those with organic farms or nurseries but also for conventional growers," said Tariq Butt, one of the researchers.
