Protect your crops with Mycotal when temperatures drop

Even in the middle of winter, pests like whitefly and thrips can be present in your greenhouse. Although pest reproduction might be low in colder conditions, or the pest may be inactive due to winter hibernation, they will start to build up a population as soon as the conditions are favorable.

Overwintering pests can become a serious threat to your crop at a later stage. Therefore, it is crucial to eliminate pests in wintertime while pest pressure is still low. It allows you to start the new season in a clean way, giving your beneficial insects time to build up a standing army before new pests enter from outside the greenhouse later in the season.

Effective whitefly control with Mycotal
Mycotal is a bio-insecticide that contains the highly effective blastospores of Lecanicillium muscarium Ve6. This product is the natural solution for whiteflies and a number of other pests in vegetables, ornamentals, nursery trees, and soft fruit in protected cultivation.

Mycotal is a so-called entomopathogenic fungus, a fungus that can attack and kill pests. The bio-insecticide contains the blastospores of Lecanicillium muscarium Ve6. These spores germinate rapidly after spraying, with the hyphae penetrating the pest’s body cavity. Once inside, they proliferate and destroy the tissue.

Mycotal is safe and easy to use and can be applied using existing spraying equipment. It is compatible in the tank mix with a wide range of other plant protection products, making it easy to integrate in your current spraying program. An added benefit is that it leaves no residue, which helps growers meet the increasingly demanding supply chain requirements. Due to its specific mode of action, Mycotal is safe for beneficial insects, making it a powerful weapon in an integrated IPM program.
