Lecanicillium muscarium strain Ve6 is the active ingredient in the commercial class microbial product Mycotal Biological Insecticide, which suppresses whiteflies on greenhouse tomato. Lecanicillium muscarium strain Ve6 is a fungus that kills insects by infection and growth of hyphal bodies. It is active by contact.

Mycotal Biological Insecticide is a new commercial class product that provides suppression of whiteflies on greenhouse tomatoes.

Applications of Mycotal Biological Insecticide target the nymph stage of whiteflies. Lecanicillium muscarium strain Ve6 is a new organism for use against whiteflies on greenhouse tomatoes. Mycotal Biological Insecticide will be a valuable part of an integrated pest management (IPM) program for greenhouse tomatoes.

Before making a final registration decision on L. muscarium strain Ve6 and Mycotal Biological Insecticide, Health Canada’s PMRA will consider any comments received from the public in response to PRD2020-14. Health Canada will accept written comments before November 20, 2020.
