Biological soil insecticide. The newest biotechnological preparation to control soil pests: Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa (European mole cricket), wireworms, larvae and adults of the May and Colorado potato beetle.
The active and effective basis of the preparation is the mycelium and spores of several races of entomopathogenic fungi.
Spores of the fungus in the soil, in contact with the body of the pest, germinate and damage adipose tissue, intestinal tract within 10-12 hours, paralyze the nervous system, muscle tissue and respiratory organs. As a result, the pest dies and becomes a source for the fungus itself and other soil microflora. Total death occurs in 40-120 hours, depending on the age of the larva or imago. It is safe for people, animals, earthworms, and therefore the use of the preparation does not require special security measures.
- Entocide© is introduced into the soil in any available method: by mixing with fertilizers, in solution with irrigation water, by spraying the soil.
