Once the spores of Metarhizium anisopliae come in contact with the insect cuticle, they germinate and penetrate the body of the insect causing mortality through combination of chemical and mechanical reactions and water and nutrient loss. Gradually the insect body gets covered with green mycelium and spores, which gets dispersed and cause subsequent infections. Toxins such as destruxin produced by this fungus causes the mortality of insects.
