Metarhizium anisopliae

1x 10^10 cfu/g Metarhizium Anisopliae supply

Metarhizium anisopliae,  also known as green muscardine fungi,  is beneficial fungus having the ability to kill a broad spectrum of insecticides including sucking insects, beetles, and caterpillars, it is one of most successful and long lasting bilogical control programs. Spores of Metarhizium attached to insect cuticle and kills them by penetrating and consuming it. Metarhizium anisopliae spores are able to survive in soil, organic matter and debris of dead infected insects and can infect another insect by secondary infection.

Target Pest

Wide range of insects including sucking, chewing and cutting type of insects, such as root weevils, flies, gnats, thrips, locusts, grasshoppers, anopheline larvae, rice planthopper, chafer, weevil, gold needle worm, moth butterfly larva, pupae and aphids, pupae, peach heart beetles, cocoon leaf beetle, locust, cabbage diamondback moth, cabbage worm and tomato cotton bollworm.


First, asexual conidia (singular=conidium) come into contact with the arthropod integument as the arthropod travels through the environment. The conidia stick to the arthropod’s exoskeleton, germinate and grow a germ tube, which eventually ends in an appressorium, the flattened and thickened tip of a germ tube. A penetration peg grows under the appressorium, pierces the integument and enters the hemocoel. The penetration of the fungus is achieved by the production of a cocktail of hydrolytic enzymes including proteases, lipases, chitinases, and mechanical pressure.

Second, single cells of the fungus, blastospores, bud off of the penetration structure, circulate in the insect hemocoel and multiply, thereby depleting host nutrients. Metarhizium species are also known to produce compounds that are toxic to arthropods and presumably aid in killing the host, suppressing host immune defenses and fending off potential microbial competitors.

Finally, after the host dies due to mycosis, the fungus will penetrate out of the integument and grow conidiophores, on which environmentally stable aerial conidia are produced. These conidia are passively disseminated into the environment and eventually infect new hosts.

When host insects are first sensed by metarhizium anisopliae, yellow-brown spots can be seen on the body wall. Due to the action of metarhizium toxin, insects begin to show neurological disorders. Larvae stop feeding, their response to stimuli decreases, and they eventually die. After death, the corpse became rigid, and the hyphae inside the worm began to extend to the outside. The body was soon covered with a layer of white hyphae. Then one or two days later, conidial stalks and conidia formed on the hypha. It turns green or dark green.

Dosage & Method
  • Foliar application: Dissolve 20 gram metarhizium anisophiae per liter of water,  apply on both sides of the leaves.

  • Soil drenching: Dissolve 20 gram in one litre of water  and drench to the base of each plant.

  • Soil application: Mix 2  kg metarhizium anisophiae with 20Kgs of dried and powdered farm yard manure and apply to one acre of main field just before transplanting.

  •  Keep Metarhizium anisophiae products away from the silkworm area.

  •  After the solution is well prepared, it should be used up within 2 hours to avoid premature germination and loss of infectivity.

  •  Excessive contact with the human body may cause allergic reactions, low-grade fever, itchy skin, etc., and pay attention to skin protection during application.

  • The metarhizium anisopliae products should be applied in cloudy days, or in the evening to avoid direct sunlight. Keeping the field environment wet is also essential.
