Safe and effective for use against thrips, fungus gnats, mites and whitefly! Novozymes Met52 EC is a contact bio-pesticide that contains live spores of the insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae strain F52 (11.0%). Applied as a soil drench or foliar application it kills listed pest insects within 3-7 days of contact. May be applied up to the day of harvest.
Note: Metarhizium anisopliae is a naturally occurring fungus — not genetically modified — found in soils worldwide. Once the spores come in contact with susceptible insects they penetrate the cuticle or exoskeleton and begin to grow inside, causing the insect to die.
