Quick Share

08 April 2024, New Delhi: Patanjali Meta is formed by a fungus called metarhizium anisopliae (Spores) which is naturally found in the soil and it is a high-quality bioinsecticide.

  • Spores of metarhizium when come in contact with insects, they form germ tubes.
  • Germ tubes release enzymes that enter the external layer (cuticle) of the skin of insects.
  • When germ tube enters the body of insects, they use the nutrients of these insects and form mycelia which infect these insects.
  • This way the immunity of these insects becomes very weak and they die within 3-4 days.
  • When some healthy insects come into contact with the infected insects, the healthy insects also become infected and they also eventually die after some days. This happens in all stages of insects like in the case of their eggs, larva, young and adult stages which get infected by forming mycelia which is green in color and spread in all the insects. It controls the spread of termites, white grubs, caterpillars, semi-loopers, loopers, thrips, cutworms, juice-sucking insects, mealybugs, aphids, etc.
