Liquid and granular formulations for biological pest control

Met52® EC liquid

How does it work?

Suspended spores of Metarhizium anisopliae need to come in contact with the targeted pests. The spores attach to the surface of the insect, germinate and penetrate the exoskeleton and grow inside the pest. Death of target pest may take several days.

 

How do I use it?

Met52 EC can be sprayed onto foliage or applied as a soil drench once mixed into water. Since the fungus needs to infect the pest by contact, coverage of all leaf surfaces or soil profile is critical. See the product label for complete details.

Key benefits of the Met52® EC liquid include:

  • • Biological insecticide
  • • Easy-to-use liquid formula
  • • Competitive efficacy with chemical insecticides and other pest control methods
  • • Four-hour re-entry interval (USA) and zero hour re-entry interval (CAN)
  • • No post-harvest interval (USA and Canada)
  • • Fully suitable as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program
  • • No known resistance, making it a valuable tool for insecticide resistance management

Met52® Granular

How does it work?

Met52 Granular Bioinsecticide is composed of spores of the insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae Strain F52 on a grain matrix. Once the product is incorporated into the growing medium, insects that come into contact with the fungus will become infected. The spores of Metarhizium anisopliae attach to the surface of the insect, germinate and begin to grow. It will penetrate the exoskeleton of the insect and grow very rapidly inside the insect, causing the insect to die.

 

How do I use it?

Apply Met52 Granular Bioinsecticide prior to or during planting by thoroughly mixing the product into the growing medium, ensuring even distribution.

Key Benefits of Met52 Granular include:

  • • No known resistance
  • • No chemical residue or harvest restrictions
  • • No toxicological classification
  • • Compatible with IPM programs as the preventive tool of the program
