BioCeres WP is a mycoinsectide, meaning it is a microbial insecticide that infects insects with a living pathogen that ultimately causes insect death. This is a biological process where a fungus that is known to afflict insects is employed, meanwhile causing no harm to crops and plants. Being that it utilizes a naturally occurring process, it is both EPA and OMRI approved.
In this particular case, Beauveria bassiana fungus is spread to insects including whiteflies, aphids, thrips, weevils, and cabbage maggots. It is safe for use on an extensive number of crops, ornamentals, and other plants.

Why BioCeres WP?
BioCeres WP works by adhering to insects’ outer skin, penetrating their exoskeleton, and infecting them with white muscardine disease. This disease works as a parasite that leeches nutrients from the insect causing their death in a matter of days. It is effective during any stage of insect development, and can be used as a stand-alone treatment method or part of an Integrated Pest Management program. BioCeres WP can be applied via soil drench or as a foliar spray every 5-7 days.
