Biological Insecticide SAFERMIX WP X 500 Grams
This biological insecticide is made from a mixture of Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae, Lecanicillium lecanii fungi and Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria, ideal for controlling insect pests in different crops.
The fungi Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae and Lecanicillium lecanii attack various groups of insects that are pests in crops. These fungi enter the body of the insect and invade its hemocoel through the formation of appressoria and the production of subtilisin-type enzymes (PR1), metalloproteases; as well as enzymes with chitinolytic activity, antibiotics and bovericin-type metabolites. The spores of these fungi do not need to be ingested and can attack both sucking and chewing insects.
On the other hand, Bacillus thuringiensis is a spore-forming bacterium.
that produces endotoxins that when ingested by the insect cause damage to their digestive system, colonize the body of the insect causing death by septicemia
SAFERMIX WP should be kept tightly covered and stored in a cool, dry place and protected from the direct rays of the sun.
