Aarmour contains heat tolerant beneficial entomopathogenic nematode Heterorhabditisindica that works better against many insect pests when the temperature is between 25°C and 29°C. This nematode generally search for their hosts by moving through the soil matrix, the behavior is referred to as a “cruiser” foraging strategy. This nematode has been successfully used as a biological control agent to manage small hive beetles, fungus gnats and other pests .
2. Aarmour is effective against the following pests :-
Fall armyworm, Spodopterafrugiperda
Fungus gnat, Bradysiadifformis
Indian meal moth, Plodiainterpunctella
Root weevil, Diaprepesabbreviatus
Small hive beetle, Aethinatumida
Western flower thrips, Frankliniellaoccidentalis
White grubs, Holotrichiaserrata, Leucopholislepidophora, Hopliaphilanthus, Popillia japonica
3. Key factors for Aarmour effectiveness :-
Aarmour containsHeterorhabditisindica which is heat tolerant nematode and it works better against many insect pests when temperature is between 25°C and 29°C
This warm adapted nematode performed much better than the cold adapted entomopathogenic nematode Steinernemafeltiae against fungus gnats in the greenhouse.
H. indica has great potential to manage fungus gnats and other pests in the field because warm temperature is one of the key factors restricting use of other cold adapted species of entomopathogenic nematodes that proved to be effective against fungus gnats.
Nematode infective juveniles always carry symbiotic bacteria, Photorhabdusluminescens in their gut and use as a weapon to kill their insect host.
In the body cavity, infective juveniles release symbiotic bacteria, P. luminescens from their gut in insect blood where multiplying nematode-bacterium complex causes septicemia and kill their insect host usually within 24-48 hours after infection.
4. How Aarmour work in the field :-
When the infective juveniles of Aarmour are applied to the soil surface in the fields, thatch layer on golf courses, or any potting media, they start searching for their insect hosts.
Once insect larva has been located, the nematode infective juveniles penetrate into the larval body cavity via natural openings such as mouth, anus and spiracles and in some instances they can also enter through the host cuticle.
Once in the body cavity, infective juveniles release symbiotic bacteria, Phytorhabdusluminescens in insect blood.
In the blood, multiplying nematode-bacterium complex causes septicemia and kill their insect host usually within 24-48 hours after infection.
Nematodes feed on multiplying bacteria, mature into adults, reproduce and then emerge as infective juveniles from the host cadaver to seek new larvae in the soil and life cycle continues.
5. Why you need Aarmour :-
Aarmour contains natural parasites of insect pests so they do not pollute or harm the environment
they can kill their hosts rapidly within 24-28 hours after infection
they have a broad range of insect hosts
able to search for insect hosts actively, infect and kill them
nematodes can easily reproduce inside the dead insect body and emerge as infective juvenile that start looking for new hosts to continue the life cycle in the soil after first application
they can be easily applied using traditional insecticide spraying equipment
6. Why Aarmour is safer than traditional pesticides :-
They do not damage plants can be used and applied around children and pets do not cause any harm to the personnel involved in their production and application.
Food products are safe to handle and eat when they are treated with nematodes they do not harm humans, animals, beneficial insects (i.e. honey bees), microbial communities and other beneficial nematodes.
