How it works

How it works

When the formulated products of SpltNPV is applied to crops and ingested by Spodoptera litura larvae, the virions are released and replicate massively in the larvae's body and then spread throughout the body while rapidly consuming body tissues. Spodoptera litura that ingest the virus become lethargic during their sickness caused by the virus infection, and appear sublethal. Eventually, they will die with their internal organs and tissues liquefied. In addition, the virions will continue to spread like a plague between and through several generations of Spodoptera litura through the fluid or feces of the dead Spodoptera litura larvae, providing effective long-term control of the Spodoptera litura population.
