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
Before using a biological product, it is important to understand exactly how the bioinsecticide works, as this will increase the effectiveness of its use.
Does the bioinsecticide need to be in contact with or eaten by the pest? This determines where, when, and how you apply it.
Do you want to use a bioinsecticide that inhibits the growth of the pest? Be sure to use it when the pests are young.
Find out which generation of pests does the most damage? Do not rely on a bioinsecticide that inhibits reproduction. Although, if the pest overwinters in your field and does not migrate, you may be able to reduce the population for next season.
