Bacillus thuringiensis v kurstaki (Btk)
Using a particular strain of Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki, BT NOW provides broad spectrum control for a long list of Lepidoptera pests that feed on a wide variety of plants. This biopesticide works by introducing bacterial spores and toxins into the body of the insect larvae as it feeds on foliage. These toxins quickly disrupt, and soon completely stop, normal digestive functions of the pest insect. The infected larvae will cease eating within minutes and fully succumb to the effects of the BTK and die within 2-5 days.
BT NOW is most effective when applied during the active feeding stage of larval life. For best results, carefully monitor your crops to identify target pest infestations. Apply as soon as insects are found or when there are the first signs of feeding. Cover all foliage completely and repeat applications as needed to maintain control.
