According to former people’s research, M. acridums has been tested and found to be effective on locust management. But it has a limitation on locust management that is time-consuming on locust killing. We combined M.acridums with RNAi, improving its virulence ability so as to shorten the killing time.
Here the yeast refers to Sacchromyce cerevisiae, we use S. cerevisiae to produce dsRNA, and it can deliver dsRNA to locusts by oral delivery, and the dsRNA will activate RNAi in the locusts, efficiently silence the expression of related genes to kill the locusts. Finally, S. cerevisiae can be packed into dry yeast powder, which is convenient for transportation and storage.
After getting the product, the local farmer can spray it to the farmland in either form of liquid or dry powder. Or the farmer can continue fermentation, after secondary production, the farmer can get more yeast and then spray them to farmland. Yeast biopesticide has been successful in fruit flies and Anopheles larvae.
Because the target developmental stage of the yeast biopesticide M. acridums are overlapped, we innovatively combine these two solutions: With complementary advantages, Abaddon Remedy can kill locust more efficiently by doing both
the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.
