Bio-Power is a biological insecticide based on a selective strain of naturally -occurring entomopathogenic fungus; Beauveria Bassiana

Mode of Action:

  • Beauveria Bassiana 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: 80ml / 20L of water (4L/ha)      

Application Guide

  • Beauveria Bassiana  works best in a temperature of 16-26OC  and a relative humidity of 85-90% during the first 2-3days
  • Avoid chemical fungicide spray at least  a day before and after using Bio -Power. Don’t mix product with chemical fungicide.
  • Apply early morning or late evening. Avoid using product in high temperatures as this affects fungus growth.
