The active ingredient of biopesticide NOFLY, spores of the entomopathogenic fungus Isaria fumosorosea FE9901, is safe for pollinators, bees and bumblebees, as it has been demonstrated through compatibility tests published on the 10th Ecoletter of Futureco Bioscience. To be approved for its trade in the EU, it is essential that an insecticide is safe for insects like bees or bumblebees, key organisms to ecosystems and agricultural crops, since much of the food production is enhanced by their pollination work. Less than a year ago some insecticides were withdrewn from the market as it had been revealed that they killed populations of these insects, an initiative taken by governments and administration that enhances the development of more sustainable and clean agricultural methodologies for pest prevention and control.
These tests demonstrate, once again, that biopesticide NOFLY is a useful, effective and safe tool for its use in Integrated Pest Management programs.
