Product Overview

The BotaniGard ES Emulsifiable Suspension Mycoinsecticide liquid is mainly used to control the most troublesome aphids, thrips, whitefly and other soft bodies' insects in field crops and greenhouses. BotaniGard ES formulation has live spores from the fungus that is naturally occurring in the Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA, the active ingredient, and with a higher spore concentration helps in controlling the pests from permanently damaging crops. When properly applied, the products insect control can exceed many other chemical insecticides.

The products mode of action is not the typical MOA, the applied spores will directly infect through the outside of the insect's skin. It will then germinate and produce enzymes that dissolve the cuticle eventually penetrating the skin of the pest and grow inside. A visible indication of insect death is the discoloration of the pupae or larvae. Product comes in a liquid form and is registered for use in the USA. The BotaniGard ES Mycoinsecticide has an excellent crop safety profile with a big and diverse crop list and different use sites.

What is the concentration of BotaniGard ES Emulsifiable Suspension Mycoinsecticide with water for mites?

We have been using 1oz per gallon and it doesn't seem to work.


You can use 1 oz BotaniGard ES Emulsifiable Suspension Mycoinsecticide per gallon of water. At least 2 or 3 applications are suggested 3 to 5 days apart. Make weekly applications thereafter until the pest is eliminated. Keep in mind that this product is only labeled to control two-spotted spider mites, so if you have a different kind of mites, this may not be effective on them.
