These naturally occurring products were discovered in the 1960’s and have been used ever since for worm and caterpillar control. When the insects ingest the product it causes a disease in their gut where they stop feeding and eventually die. It is 98.35% active (at least 6 million viable spores per mg.)

Only Lepidoptera insects which are caterpillars and worm type insects are affected. Others are not controlled.

Mix with water and apply at 5 – 7 day intervals while insects are active. The product must be eaten by the insects to be effective. It is best to treat when the insects are small. It can be used up to and on the day of harvest.
