Active Ingredients
  • Lecanicillium lecanii J27

MODE OF ACTION

The infection process is as follows

  • Attachment – Spores of L.lecanii attach to the insect body.
  • Germination – Spores germinate and form an appressorium.
  • Invasion – The appressorium breaks the insect cuticle and enters the insect body by mechanical pressure and enzymatic action.
  • Proliferation – The fungi multiply throughout the insect body, releasing toxins that destroy the insect’s organs leading to the death of the insect causing the ‘white halo disease’.
  • Emergence – Thue fungi emerge from the insect body sporulate and start the infection cycle upon contact with other insects.
