Biological Control Of Coleopteran Pests

Abstract

Disclosed are double stranded RNA molecules that are toxic to coleopteran insects. In particular, interfering RNA molecules that capable of interfering with pest histone genes and that are toxic to the target pest are provided. Further, methods of making and using the interfering RNA, for example in transgenic plants to confer protection from insect damage are disclosed.
