Mode of Action :

  • Conidial penetration : The microscopic conidial spores of the fungus on coming in contact with the body of the insect host start germinating and penetrate the cuticle and grow inside the insect body thereby killing the insect within a few days.
  • Enzyme production : BESSIANA secretes enzymes which attack and dissolve the cuticle, penetrate the skin and grow into the insect body. Beauveria bassiana present in BESSIANA produces a toxin called beauvericin that weakens the host's immune system. After the insect dies, an antibiotic -oosporein, is produced that enables the fungus to outcompete intestinal bacteria. BESSIANA mycelia also produce an octacyclodepsipeptide toxin called bassianolide that consists of of fourmolecules each of D-hydroxyisovaleric acid and L-Nmethylleucine which have insecticidal properties.(Suzuki et al., 1977).
  • Growth : Once inside, BESSIANA replicates and consumes the insects' internal organs and blood-like fluid, the hemolymph. . BESSIANA has the ability to live in the vascular tissue of certain corn cultivars as an endophyte. BESSIANA infects the insect on contact and does not need to be consumed by the host to cause infection. A white mold emerges from the insects’ dead body after a few days and produces new spores. Environment factors: The rate at which BESSIANA kills the host is dependent on temperature and humidity. High humidity is essential for conidial germination and infection establishes between 24 and 48 hours. The infected insect may live for three to five days after hyphal penetration and, after death of host insect pest, the conidiophores bearing conidia are produced on cadaver.
