METALIN

Metalin is an eco-friendly bio pesticide. Metalin is an entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae that infects the pests that comes in contact with it. Once the fungus spores attach to the surface of the pests, they germinate and begin to grow and then they penetrate the exoskeleton of the insect and start to grow very rapidly inside the pest, thereby causing the pest to die. Other pests that come in contact with the infected pest also become infected with the fungus. It is used mainly in the control of white grubs.
