WSDA LogoSpecifically formulated for use in organic production, Mycotrol WPO is a biological insecticide used to control primarily the nymphal and larval stages of whitefly, thrips, aphids, psyllids, mealybugs, scarab beetles, plant bugs, weevils and many other insects in greenhouse and field crops. Based on the highly successful fungus, Beauveria bassiana, strain GHA, it controls the most troublesome crop pests – even resistant strains. Because of its superior formulation, higher spore concentration, high viability and proven performance, it outperforms other Beauveria-containing products. When properly applied, Mycotrol insect control can equal or exceed that of chemical insecticides

Application

Mycotrol WPO controls a wide variety of soft-bodied insects in greenhouse, field and nursery crops such as whiteflies, thrips, aphids, psyllids, mealybugs, scarab beetles, plant bugs and weevils. It has excellent plant safety on a broad range of crops. Mycotrol Ois registered for an extensive number of ornamentals, herbs and spices, vegetables, fruits and berries. There is no limit to the number of times that BotaniGard can be applied in a season. A weekly application program can prevent insect population explosions and provide a level of control equal to or better than conventional chemical programs.

Unique Mode of Action

Mycotrol WPO'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.
