Beauveria Bassiana – is a Natural Host Specific Biopesticide
Strains of Beauveria bassiana (Bb)have been developed as host-specific pathogens for insects of the same genus. These strains recognize their hosts to the exclusion of all other organisms. The host specificity of this natural pathogen makes it an ideal biological pesticide and may eliminate the use of toxic chemical insecticides that non-specifically kill all insects and may be harmful to people, animals, beneficial insects, such as the honey bee, and the environment.
