Mycotrol WPO is a mycoinsecticide, an insecticide using live fungal spores, and comes as a wettable powder to be mixed with water and sprayed during application. The active ingredient is Beauveria bassiana, which provides a natural control for a wide variety of insects at various life stages. Mycotrol WPO contains the highest spore concentration in a Beauveria bassiana-containing insecticide. After application, the spores adhere to the host insect and use enzymes to attack and ultimately dissolve the cuticle that surrounds and contains the body cavity. As it grows, the Beauveria bassiana fungus will ultimately kill the unwanted insects without harming most beneficials.
Mycotrol WPO can be used as a foliar or turf spray or as a root drench.
