Abstract: Entomopathogenic bacteria isolated from Simulium   larvae and adults from breeding sites in the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, were identified as 18 strains of Bacillus thuringiensis   and one of B. sphaericus. Most of these strains were serotyped according to their flagellar antigens. However, nine of the B. thuringiensis samples, could not be serotyped and were designated as "autoagglutinating"; they were also shown to be toxic in preliminary tests against Aedes aegypti   larvae. Additionally, B. sphaericus   was also shown to be toxic towards Culex quinquefasciatus   larvae.
