metarhizium anisoplia
    #11685455 - 12/20/09 12:47 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Anyone have any experience with this species? I have an older dog who had fleas for 2 months now. I have been trying everything to get rid of them naturally , but they are kicking my ass.  I have been avoiding using the spot treatments like frontline. I don't want to use these because i believe he may be having kidney failure.

I think this is the same species that PS used on termites in his home. The spores when coming in contact with insects are supposed to germinate and take over the insect. Lots of insects are supposed to have developed resistance to it. I want to test it on fleas! It is not supposed to have any effect mammals . A high spore load may not be good for breathing though. My plan was to get it to sporulate , then to spread these across the carpet and his bedding.

Prior to spreading these all over my house. I plan to test the spores out in a jar with some fleas to see if they are affected. Any ideas , suggestions or experience with this??

About 2 years ago, our dogs got infested with dog ticks - those pests are nice enough to not go for people or cats, but they can breed inside a house and it was pretty gross.

We tried everything that the veterinarian and pet shop had ... not much effect. Then we got a product containing Beauveria bassiana (Mycotrol O), put a little on the dogs, wiped it on the baseboards, and the ticks were soon gone. Was this a double-blind test? No, but some of those have been done on Metarhizium and other species of ticks, and it does help control them.

The big draw back - price. About $90 for a quart of oil with the spores. We only used a fraction of an ounce.
