What's Metarhizium Anisopliae Products
Metarhizium anisopliae products is a broad-spectrum insect pathogen that can be parasitic to a variety of pests. It enters the body of the pest through its surface or feeding and continuously multiplies in the body of the pest.
Metarhizium anisopliae consumes nutrients, mechanically penetrates, and produces toxins, and continues to spread among the pest population, killing the pest. Parasitic to more than 200 pests such as Lepidoptera, Orthoptera, Coleoptera, Homoptera with no resistance developed, no pollution to the environment.

Mode of Action
Metarhizium Anisopliae Products are pathogenic fungus to pests. The conidia of metarhizium anisopliae are easily attached to the internodes of the host insect’s skin.
When encountering suitable temperature and humidity, the conidia germinate, produce bud tubes, and form hyphae. Mycelia secrete enzymes capable of dissolving chitin, dissolving insect body walls. And by the pressure of bacteria on host invasion, hyphae invade the host’s epidermis, and then gradually inwardly invade, invading the adipose tissue and muscle of insects. The mycelium multiplies in the insect body, causing the insect to die.
When host insects are first sensed by metarhizium anisopliae, yellow-brown spots can be seen on the body wall. Due to the action of metarhizium toxin, insects begin to show neurological disorders. Larvae stop feeding, their response to stimuli decreases, and they eventually die. After death, the corpse became rigid, and the hyphae inside the worm began to extend to the outside. The body was soon covered with a layer of white hyphae. Then one or two days later, conidial stalks and conidia formed on the hypha. It turns green or dark green.
Features of Metarhizium Anisopliae Products
(1) Wide Spectrum & Adaptability
The host range of Metarhizium anisopliae is wide, and it can parasite more than 200 species of pests in 30 families and eight orders. It is mainly used to control pests such as chafer, weevil, gold needle worm, moth butterfly larva, pupae and aphids, underground pests, pupae, pests, peach heart beetles, cocoon leaf beetle, locust, cabbage diamondback moth, cabbage worm and tomato cotton bollworm, etc. The optimum temperature for the growth of metarhizium anisopliae is about 24 ℃ -26 ℃, and it can still develop normally between 10 ℃- 30 ℃, which has wide adaptability.
(2) Non-Drug Resistance
Metarhizium anisopliae products are microbial fungicide, which mainly kills pests through parasitic reproduction.it can be used continuously without drug resistance because using naturally biological restraint.
(3) Safe to Use
Metarhizium anisopliae products only act on host pests. Crops, humans, and animals can be safe when contacted.
(4) No Pollution
The production of metarhizium anisopliae products is a safe fermentation method; no chemic pesticide added. It has been recognized as a green, safe, and sustainable biological pesticide.
Metarhizium anisopliae products’ life cycle is following the principles of spore creatures. On the potato medium, it grows well. First, white colonies are formed. After 2-3 days, the hypha branches are intertwined with each other to form conidial stalks. The spores are covered with penicillium-like clusters of conidia, and the initial conidia are white, slowly green or dark green. The conidia size varies greatly, but it is generally about (5-7) × (2-3) μm.
Metarhizium anisopliae products are suitable for all crops. It widely uses in the production of wheat, corn, peanuts, soybeans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, leeks, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, watermelons, cucumbers, etc.
This product can also apply on pine, poplar, willow, locust tree, and other forests as well as apples, pears, apricots, plums, cherries, pomegranates, Japanese persimmons, mangoes, litchi, longan, guava, jujube, walnuts, and other fruit trees.
Doasge of Metarhizium Anisopliae Products
Foliar Spray: 5g metarhizium anisopliae per liter of water. The water dosage depends on the crop canopy and seasonal demand. Adding some Dora natural surfactants will be better.
Dusting: Mix metarhizium anisopliae powder, dry soil, and 1% trichlorfon powder (to increase the effect, or not) evenly, and distributed in the crop field in a cloudy day. If not cloudy day, apply it at dusk, spray the water every other day.
Notice for Metarhizium Anisopliae Products
1. Keep beauveria bassiana products away from the silkworm area.
2. After the solution is well prepared, it should be used up within 2 hours to avoid premature germination and loss of infectivity.
3. Excessive contact with the human body may cause allergic reactions, low-grade fever, itchy skin, etc., and pay attention to skin protection during application.
4. The metarhizium anisopliae products should be applied in cloudy days, or in the evening to avoid direct sunlight. Keeping the field environment wet is also essential.
