DiPel PRO DF is Bacillus Thuringiensis, known as BT,(bacillus thuringencis) a bacteria that kills worms and caterpillars. It contains the same ingredient as the liquid product we carry, Thuricide, available.
Registered for use on a variety of ornamentals, DiPel PRO DF delivers outstanding control of more than 30 species of insects, including tent caterpillar and various bagworms, looper, tobacco budworms and armyworms. Its dry flowable formulation is dust free and easy to measure and mix. DiPel PRO DF is biodegradable and has minimal effect on humans, non-target animals or the environment.
Each BT strain infects a relatively narrow range of species. Studies have shown that predatory insects, such as lady beetles, are not at risk if they eat an insect that has been infected with BT. BT does not infect earthworms, nor does it kill honeybees or many other species of insects. BT is an excellent choice for control of many pest caterpillars because it does not harm predatory insects, birds, snakes and other animals that keep pest numbers low in the yard and garden.
DiPel DF is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic production.
