Caterpillar Killer Garden Dust - description

The Safer® Brand Garden Dust utilizes bacillus thuringiensis (var. kurstaki) which, once ingested by the wayward pest, kills them within a few days.

 

It is recommended that this product be applied late in the afternoon or on cloudy days since B.t. breaks down in the sunlight.

 

When the B.t. is ingested by the worm, it works as a gut rot poison that makes the worm stop feeding. The caterpillar or worm will stop feeding immediately and die within days of malnutrition.

 

Carefully read and follow all directions on the product's label. B.T. is very specific and only works on caterpillars and leaf feeding worms.

It is recommended with any pesticide to test plants for sensitivity to the product. Spray a small section of the plant in an inconspicuous area and wait 24 hours before full coverage.

 

Application Rates:

  • Apply Safer® Brand Garden Dust when pests are first noticed and repeat every 7-10 days or as necessary. Caterpillar egg hatch can occur over an extended period of time.
  • Monitor treated areas for the prescence of newly hatched pests and retreat if necessary.
  • Thorough leaf coverage is necessary for effective control. After ingesting a treated portion of the leaf, caterpillars stop feeding in a few hours and death occurs in a few days.
  • Apply at a rate of 2 to 3 ounces per 50 feet of row planting.
