lecanii is a biological insecticide based on a selective strain of naturally-occurring entomopathogenic fungus, Verticillium lecanii spores when comes in contact with the target insect, attaches to the cuticle (outer skin) and then germinates and grows directly through spiracle into the inner body of the host. By taking nutrients from the insect it further proliferates and colonizes the entire insect and thus drains the insect of nutrients. The infected insects eventually dies. It is a common pathogen of scale insects in tropical and subtropical climates.
V. lecanii is known as a "white-halo" fungus because of the white mycelial growth on the edges of infected scale insects. The conidia (spores) of V. lecanii are slimy and attach to the cuticle of insects. The fungus infects insects by producing hyphae from germinating spores that penetrate the insect's integument; the fungus then destroys the internal contents and the insect dies. The fungus eventually grows out through the cuticle and sporulates on the outside of the body. Infected insects appear as white to yellowish cottony particles. Diseased insects usually appear in 7 days.
