Metarhizium Anisopliae

Metarhizium anisopliae insecticide control beetles, termites, and weevils bugs

Metarhizium anisopliae,  also called Metarhizium Robertsii, well known as green muscardine fungi,  is entomopathogenic fungi as biocontrol agent to kill a broad spectrum bug pest, including termites, weevils, beetles, and caterpillars. The beetle killer is one of most successful and long lasting biological insecticide uses in agriculture. The metarhizium insecticide can infect other insects by secondary infection and can survive in soil, organic detritus, and the remains of deceased infected insects.

Target Insect

  • Ticks
  • Flies
  • Thrips
  • Grasshoppers
  • Spittlebugs
  • Borers
  • Root weevils
  • Gnats
  • Locusts
  • Cockchafers
  • Grubs
  • Beet armyworm

Mode of Action

  • As the arthropod moves through its environment, asexual conidia (singular form) first make touch with the integument. The appressorium, or flattened and thickened tip of a germ tube, is produced after the conidia adhere to the exoskeleton of the arthropod and germinate. Under the appressorium, a penetration peg develops, pierces the integument, and enters the hemocoel. A combination of hydrolytic enzymes is produced in order to penetrate the fungus.
  • Second, the fungus’s individual cells, called blastospores, bud off from the penetration structure, circulate in the insect hemocoel, and grow, depleting the host’s nutritional reserves. Metarhizium insecticide are also known to create substances harmful to arthropods, which may help them kill their hosts, weaken their immune systems, and fend off possible microbial rivals.
  • The fungus will eventually break through the integument when the host dies from mycosis and grow conidiophores, which produce environmentally stable aerial conidia. These conidia are passively spread into the environment and eventually infect other insect hosts.
  • Yellow-brown dots can be visible on the body wall when metarhizium spp fungus initially detects host pest. Insects such as termites , weevils and beetles start to exhibit neurological problems as a result of the metarhizium spp toxin’s effect. Larvae stop eating, show less reaction to stimuli, and eventually pass away. After passing away, the carcass stiffened and the hyphae inside the worm started to spread outward. White hyphae quickly formed a coating that coated the body. Conidial stalks and conidia subsequently developed on the hyphae a day or two later. It either turns dark green or green.

  • Eco-friendly and organically sourced goods
  • Microbial beetle killer, non-drug resistance
  • Enhances the health and production of the plant
  • Useful for both soil and foliage-eating insects
  • Persistent defence due to spores remain on pest host

Rate of Application

  • Apply 1-2 grammes of metarhizium anisopliae powder per liter of water to the foliage spray, coating both sides of the leaves.
  • 1-2 grammes of the beetle killer should be dissolved in a liter of water and applied to the soil around the base of each plant.
  • Before transplanting, apply 1 kg of metarhizium insecticide products and 50 kg of dried and powdered farm yard manure to one hectare of the main field.
