MEALIKIL ® PLUS is a unique biological insecticide based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring entomopathogenic fungus Verticillium lecanii (NCIM 1312 ) that infects and kills mealy bugs and sucking insects like thrips, jassids , aphids, white flies and mites. Fungi usually need higher humidity to multiply and pathogensie the Mealy bugs. In dry spells, these fungi cannot multiply. Thus normal formulations of these biopesticides are less effective in management of Mealy bugs. MEALIKIL ® PLUS contains spores and mycelial fragments and metabolites of Verticillium lecanii which work under high humidity -low temperature and low humidity- high temperature conditions. It is formulated as Powder with CFU count of 1 X 10 ^ 8 / g. MEALIKIL ® PLUS is approved for use in Organic agriculture. The strain of MEALIKIL ® PLUS (Verticillium lecanii) is owned by Agri Life..
