We are working with Bacillus sphaericus and trying to make a spore
suspension.  We are having issues getting it to sporulate.  We have
tried sporulation agar and even placing the plates after growth in the
refrigerator for a week.  

Anybody have experience with this bug and any suggestions you might have
for us. 

Thanks in advance,
