What are Biological Pesticides?

Biological Pesticides or Biopesticides are certain types of pesticides derived from such natural materials as animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals.

Biopesticides are meant to decrease the use of conventional pesticides and thus save the crops from contamination.

The use of Biopesticides must be done with clear strategy/approach; as such pesticides are generally target specific.

 

What are the advantages of using Biopesticides?

– Biopesticides are inherently less toxic than conventional pesticides because they are sourced naturally and are mostly free of harmful chemicals.

– As mentioned before, Biopesticides are target specific. Thus, such pesticides only affect the “target pest” and closely related organisms. On the other hand, the conventional pesticides affect all other organisms like birds, insects, and other animals.

– You do need huge quantities of Biopesticides for it to be effective. Additionally, such pesticides also decompose quickly. This means – less costing and less pollution. It’s a win-win.

– Most of the Biopesticides are effective and there has been no evidence of resistance.

– The Conventional technique or methods of applications is used which makes it easy for farmers.

But this is NOT everything you need to know about Biological pesticides. To use Biopesticides effectively (and safely), farmers must have knowledge of these 4 things – which biopesticide to use, when to use, target insects, and target crops.

Let’s discuss about the range of Biopesticides that are based on different types of microorganisms especially fungus –

 

 

Bio-Clean-Sweep - Biological pesticides

Bio Clean Sweep

The Bio Clean Sweep Bioesticide by Utkarsh Agrochem is made from living organisms and fungi which causes a disease known as the “white muscadine” in insects.

When spores of Bio Clean Sweep fungus come in contact with susceptible insects, they germinate and grow directly through the cuticle to the inner body.

Here the fungus proliferates throughout the insect’s body, producing toxins and draining the insect of nutrients, eventually killing it.

When to use it?

– The Bio Clean Sweep is used when insects start attacking and are visible with naked eyes.

Target Insects

– Sucking Pest like Aphids, Jassids, Thrips, Mealy Bug, Brown Plant Hoppers, Scale Insects, White flies, Mites, Leaf miner, etc.

– Larvae and Caterpillars like Helicoverpa, Spodoptera, Plutella, Borers, Hairy Caterpillars, Cut Worms, Army Worms, Leaf Roller, etc.

Target Crops

–  It can be used on all types of fruits, vegetables, grains, flowers, and ornamental plants that are damaged by insects.
