This Beauvaria Bassiana Concentrate Spore is CFU:9.2 x 10 ^8

Bavaria bassiana is an entomopathogenic fungi that infects a wide variety of plant pests, including but not limited to aphids, whitefly, spidermite, thrips, and many other species. 

Once the host insect is infected, the fungus rapidly grows inside of the insect, feeding on the nutrients present in the host's body and producing toxins in the process. When the host dies, the B. bassiana covers the carcass in a layer of white mould that produces more infective spores.

Mix at double strength for heavy pest pressure then reduce to a regular dose when it subsides. 

        Recommended Usage
