The vast majority of insects that damage agricultural plants have their natural enemies (fungi, bacteria, viruses). Drugs based on the use of pests against natural enemies are called bioinsecticides.
Bioinsecticides are preparations that contain bacteria, such as the fungus Streptomyces avermitilis, that act on insects as a virus. When plant pests swallow bacteria, they die as a result of the virus.
Action of bioinsecticides
Bioinsecticides can have one (or more) modes of action:
destruction of the pest by contact;
death of the insect pest after consumption;
repelling insect pests;
cessation of food consumption;
inhibition of growth, development of the pest;
prevent the reproduction of pests.
