MODE OF ACTION : Bioline/Verti-Star infects all stages of insects including eggs, larvae, pupae, nymphs and adults. The spores attach to insect cuticle / integuments, germinate and penetrate insect body. The hyphae through enzyme action proliferate in insect body and cause mortality through a combination of chemical, mechanical, water loss and nutrient loss effects. The insect body ultimately gets covered with mycelium and spores which may get dispersed and cause subsequent infections. Certain toxins - dipicolinic acid and bassianolide produced by this fungus also cause the mortality of insects.
