PAECILOMITE is a biological insecticide / Acaricide/ Miticide based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus that infects and kills many types of insects and mites.
PAECILOMITE contains spores and mycelial fragments of Paecilomyces fumosoroseus . It is formulated as Powder with CFU count of 1 X 10 ^ 8 / g.
Mode of Action
Infection : Paceilomyces fumosoroseus on getting attached to the host cuticle penetrates inside it , germinates and grows densely inside it. The fungus produces hyphae inside insect body which proliferate and start feeding on insect’s internal contents.
Enzyme production: Paceilomyces fumosoroseus produces enzymes that weakens the insect’s defense mechanisms and pathogenises it from within.
Growth : Once inside, PAECILOMITE replicates and consumes the insects / mites ' internal organs and eventually kills it. PAECILOMITE infects the mites /insects on contact and does not need to be consumed by insect to cause infection.
Environment factors : Moisture is essential for the growth and multiplication of PAECILOMITE
