Although most of the baculovirus have been isolated from the order Lepidoptera, where around 500 species are known to be hosts, they have also been isolated from other insect orders such as Neuroptera, Trichoptera, Crustacea, Hymenoptera, Coleoptera, and Diptera (Possee et al., 1997; Szewczyk et al., 2006).There are two phenotypes of baculoviruses: the budded virus (BV) and the occluded virus (OV) (Jehle et al., 2006).
