Metarhizium anisopliae is a fungus that grows naturally in soil and works as a natural guard against insect pests, such as thrips, mites, whiteflies, ticks, weevils and aphids and helps to eliminate these pests wherever they are present by overpowering pests and germinating over their bodies causing them to die.
Beauveria bassiana is a naturally growing fungus in the soil. The fungus is a natural defense nature uses to control whiteflies, thrips, aphids, mealybugs, and a host of arthropod species. It is very potent to eliminate destructive insects that devastatingly infect/kill plants and crops.
Bacillus thuringiensis Subsp. israelensis (Bti), is a natural soil bacteria found in our environment. Bti acts like a natural trap for fungus gnats larvae and will effectively eliminate fungus gnats larvae.
Hirsutella thompsonii is a natural fungus existing in our environment. This particular fungus is a natural enemy to russet mites, spider mites and other various mite pests that are of agricultural importance because of their destructiveness to plants and crops

Trichoderma is a genus of fungi that is the most prevalent fungi found in soil all over the world. The fungi are highly adaptable, making it ideal to use in different environments. Trichoderma species of fungi also has dual advantages for growers. It is a biocontrol agent for varying plant pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and nematodes, and a plant growth promoter that colonize plant roots for the added advantage of survival.
At Smart Microbes our collection of Trichoderma fungi includes Trichoderma harzianum, Trichoderma viride and Trichoderma virens. With our trio of Trichoderma we are able to formulate unique and viable Trichoderma biocontrol solutions for agriculture.
This particular strain of the Trichoderma fungi is able to colonize most plants roots and establish itself as a rhizosphere. It is used a biocontrol agent during crop production to prevent soil-borne diseases such as, Fusarium, Phythium and Rhizoctonia and other pathogens from colonizing the soil, to keep plants protected from the harmful diseases.
Trichoderma viride is especially viable to economically important crops as a biocontrol for seed and soil-borne pathogens, such as root rot, seedling disease, charcoal rot, wilt, collar rot, etc. It is also, promotes vigorous plant growth by various mechanisms.
A beneficial plant fungus which enhances biomass production and promotes lateral root growth. Trichoderma virens forms a very effective relationship with plants, not only as a growth promoter but as a biocontrol agent useful in controlling pathogens, such a damping-off disease common in greenhouse production.
