Bonide Thuricide Bt

Bonide Thuricide Bt

Bonide Thuricide Bt is a liquid formulation of Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria, also known as Bt. Bt is a type of soil-borne bacteria that has been used since the 1950s for natural insect control. Bt produces proteins that are toxic when eaten by leaf-eating larval insects. These proteins are not toxic to humans, other mammals, fish, or birds. Because the toxic proteins must be eaten by larvae to be fatal, Bt doesn’t harm beneficial insects or earthworms.

Bt can be used to control many leaf-eating worms like cabbage loopers, tomato hornworms, bagworms, cankerworms, gypsy moths, and tent caterpillars. It can safely be used on a wide variety of plants including almonds, apples, cherries, grapes, oranges, broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes, fruit and nut trees, shade trees, and ornamental plants like petunias.
