BotaniGard and Mycotrol are time-tested biological insecticides used to control a wide variety of insect pests including whitefly, thrips, and aphids. The products contain spores of the fungus, Beauveria bassiana strain GHA, and control the most troublesome greenhouse and field crop pests – even resistant strains such as Q-biotype whitefly. BotaniGard and Mycotrol are versatile enough to use as a stand-alone, as a tank mix partner, or in rotation with other insecticides. They do not require hours of high humidity, which can promote disease, to work effectively.

Unique Mode of Action

BotaniGard and Mycotrol's mode of action is unlike any conventional insecticide. The applied spores infect directly through the outside of the insect’s cuticle (the skin). Spores adhering to the host will germinate and produce enzymes that attack and dissolve the cuticle, allowing it to penetrate the skin and grow into the insect’s body. As the insect dies, it will change color to pink or brown, and eventually the entire body cavity is filled with fungal mass.  The most common visible indication of insect death is a discoloration of the larvae or pupae. It is not necessary for a white fungal growth to occur to know the product is working; the insect is killed before this happens.

Note: Use caution when making applications to open blooms, especially on varieties known to be sensitive. Test on a small group of plants for effects on open blooms before applying to the whole crop. Always read and follow label directions.
