One of the biggest risks to assess when a biopesticide is applied on a crop is its toxicity to other insects different to the pest organisms to be treated, such as beneficial insects like bees or natural enemies of the crop's pest you are preventing or controlling, and that are normally present in the environment. Natural enemies can be predators or parasitoids, and are also often used in biological pest control and Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
Recently it has been published that NOFLY, a bioinsecticide to control whiteflies whose active ingredient are spores of the entomopathogenic fungus Isaria fumosorosea (before Paecilomyces fumosoroseus) strain FE9901 is harmless to the natural enemies of whiteflies, aphids and thrips, as it is published in the Ecoletter Compatibility tests of the agrobiological insecticide NOFLY with natural enemies. Jointly with the recent publication of the Compatibility tests of the biopesticide NOFLY with widely used commercial agrochemical insecticides and fungicides, it can be concluded that NOFLY is an excellent product to combine in IPM programs to prevent and control pests of whiteflies, aphids and thrips.
