Metarhizium anisopliae, is a fungus.

It grows naturally in the soil. It causes disease in various insects by acting as a parasite.

Mode of action:

  • The disease caused by the fungus called green muscardine disease
  • The funguses (spores) come in contact with the insect and germinates the hyphae and penetrate in to the cuticle
  • The fungus then develops inside the body and kills the insect after a few days
  • This lethal effect is very likely aided by the production of insecticidal cyclic peptides (destruxins)
