Here's the actual patent and it is quite an interesting approach, but I do wonder, given how nature allows all of us to adapt, if the insects will also develop a tolerance to the fungus.

I wonder if the insect suffers a slow, gruesome, painful death?

Will it affect the beneficial insects too?

Indeed it is.

What appears to hold a key to slowing down or even stopping the current epidemic of bee colony collapse is a solution called “Mycohoney,” made from the polypore mushroom mycelium. When fed to bees in the University of Washington trials, it showed extraordinary significance in life extension of the honey bees. Walter S. Sheppard, PhD P.F.

Although, I worry about our butterflies and moths, because as cellulose-eating caterpillars they may be more affected.

This is the same guy who founded the company Host Defence, which supplies my wife with what we believe is keeping her alive.
