Symcare BB

Symcare BB is a water soluble formulation containing spores and mycelial fragments of most virulent strain of Beauveria bassiana, entomopathogenic fungus, which is effective against various sucking insect pests and chewing insect pests.

Mode of Action

The conidia of Beauveria bassiana fungi attach to the insect cuticle, the spores enter the host by germination and penetration into the insect’s skin. Once the fungus enters the host, it produces toxins that overcome the insect’s immunity. Subsequently, the hyphae enter the cuticle outwards and cause white sporulation on the insect’s body and eventually kill the insect.

Benefits

  • Secretes enzymes that will proliferate in the host insect body and causes mortality through a combination of chemical, mechanical, water loss and nutrient loss effects.
  • Reduced feeding and immobility are rapidly evident; pest dies within between 4 to 10 days post-infection. The time to death will depend on the pest species, age and conidial dose.
  • Effective against various species of borers, cutworms, root grubs, leafhoppers, whitefly, aphids, mealybugs, thrips, beetles, whitefly, larvae of Colorado beetle and also several species of leaf-gnawing pests
