MODE OF ACTION : Biomet/Ankush infects all stages of insects including eggs, larvae, pupae, nymphs and adults. The spores attach to insect cuticle / integuments, they 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 called destruxin produced by this fungus also cause the mortality of insects.
