This guide offers a entire and copious illustrated description, with unique artwork, of the most typical ailments in laboratory reared insect colonies, comprising Viruses (Baculoviridae, Reoviridae, Poxviridae, Iridoviridae); micro organism (Bacillaceae, Pseudomonadaceae, Enterobacteriaceae); Rickettsia; Fungi and Microsporidia and Protozoa. Gregarine and Coccidian parasitoids also are depicted. Manuals for the diagnostic of insect ailments were released within the 90’s, despite the fact that, those have been meant for pro insect pathologists or for knowledgeable education in invertebrate pathology, accordingly requiring a few clinical heritage in insect pathology. at the moment, so much publications are internet dependent, now not accomplished and completely addressing the commonest ailments in a selected insect, or team of bugs, reared in laboratory amenities. A complete and trained sensible instruction manual for college kids and technicians operating with insect reared colonies is missing within the present literature.

Insect body turgor changes depending on pathogen type and infection stage. Obligatory insect pathogens developing in the fat body cause hypertrophy of cells and, as a result, the body turgor of the host insect increases. However, saprophytic and semi-saprophytic bacteria produce enzymes which destroy the cell’s membrane, and the body turgor of the host insect quickly decreases. The insect external integument changes color and tensile strength. Unfortunately this typical external signs of diseases are observed not so often because bacteria in commensal hostinsect relationships rapidly multiply in presence of a physiological stressful situation and cause the darkening of insect’s body.

1. Surface disinfection should be carried out for each session. Ethyl or isopropyl alcohol at 70–90% concentration is a general disinfectant in laboratory facilities for primary disinfection. Ultra violet germicidal lamps should be also incorporated to the fume hood system for weekly surface sterilization of the fume hood. Laboratory personnel should never be exposed to UV irradiation. 2. All materials required to complete a session (sterilized glassware, scalpels, pincers, probes or other equipment) are placed inside the cabinet prior to work and opening sealed containers.
