Bio-Catch Active Ingredient:  Verticullium(Lecanicillium) Lecanii

Bio-Catch is a biological insecticide based on a selective strain of naturally -occuring entomopathogenic fungus;  Verticullium (Lecanicillium) Lecanii

Bio-Catch Mode of Action

  • Verticullium Lecanii is an entomopathogenic fungus. An entomopathogenic fungus is a soil-based microorganism that infects and kills insect and other arthropods through cuticle penetration.
  • Acts by contact action
  • The spore comes into contact with the cuticle, it attaches itself  and starts germinating to produce a hyphae.
  • The hyphae penetrates the insects body and destroys its internal structures by causing pressure and destroying extra-cellular enzymes resulting in the insects death.
  • Infected insects appear as white-yellowish cottony particles.
  • Takes 2-3days from infection to the insects death.  

Rate of Use: Liquid: 2-3ltr/ha. Powder: 3-4kg/ha
