PureAg In The HOPPER is composed of Bacillus Thuringiensis (3 strains), Metarhizium Anisopliae and Beauveria Bassiana fungus. Metarhizium Anisopliae, is a fungus that grows naturally in soils throughout the world and causes disease in various insects by acting as a parasitoid. When the fungus comes in contact with the body of an insect host, they germinate and the hyphae that emerge penetrate the cuticle, killing the insect after a few days. Beauveria Bassiana is a fungus that also grows naturally in soils throughout the world and is a parasite on various arhropod species, causing white muscadine disease. The insect is killed by the same mechanism as the Metarhizium Anisopliae. Bacillus Thuringiensis contains a poison called BT toxin. These crystal proteins, also know as "cry toxins" are inactive until they are consumed by the insect. Once ingested, the protein binds to receptors in the insect's gut (creating a hole), and ultimately causing death.
