Bassidor has been registered for Control of White Flies and Twospotted Spider Mites (TSSM) in Greenhouse
Andermatt Canada Inc would like to introduce Canadian Greenhouse Growers to a new mode of action in their quest to control White Flies and TSSM.

BASSIDOR is a Beauveria bassiana developed from a unique strain identified for it’s efficacy under challenging conditions. Packaged in a 1 kg foil pouch, BASSIDOR is a formulated as a wettable powder offering simplicity for application in commonly used application systems. The active ingredient in BASSIDOR is a naturally occurring insect-pathogenic fungus and is also a common soil inhabiting fungus. The fungus forms numerous small conidia in solid or semi-solid state fermentation systems. It is these conidia that have the ability to germinate on and penetrate insects, leading to mycosis (fungal colonization of the insect contents) and lead to mortality of the insect.
