DESIGN

Verticillium lecanii

A entomopathogenic fungi in the division Ascomycota.

How it works

The conidia (spores) of V. lecanii are slimy and attach to the cuticle of insects. The fungus infects insects by producing hyphae from germinating spores that penetrate the insect’s integument; the fungus then destroys the internal contents and the insect dies. The fungus eventually grows out through the cuticle and sporulates on the outside of the body. Infected insects appear as white to yellowish cottony particles.

The fungal mycelium of V. lecanii produces a cyclodepsipeptide toxin called bassianolide, which has been shown to kill silkworm. The fungus produces other insecticidal toxins such as dipicolinic acid.

V. lecanii works best at temperatures of 15 to 25°C and a relative humidity of 85 to 90%.

As Bio-insecticide

V. lecanii is a common pathogen of scale insects in tropical and subtropical climates commonly used for control of aphids and whiteflies. It is compatible with most parasitic and predatory arthropods.

Studies have shown that combining entomopathogenic fungi with an insecticide may enhance its performance as the fungi create wounds that make it easier for the insecticide to enter the insect.

Beauveria bassiana

An entomopathogenic fungi that grows in soil and acts as a parasite on various arthropod species, causing white muscardine disease.

How it works

When the microscopic spores of the fungus come into contact with the body of an insect host, they germinate, penetrate the cuticle, and grow inside, killing the insect within a matter of days. Afterwards, a white mold emerges from the cadaver and produces new spores.

As Bio-insecticide

As an insecticide, the spores are sprayed on affected crops as an emulsified suspension or wet table powder. Beauveria bassiana can be used to control a number of pests such as.

Termites, Thrips, Whiteflies, Aphids, Mealybugs, Psyllids, Grasshoppers, Fire ants, Flies, Stem Borer, different Beetles, Caterpillars of Coding moth and many other insects.
