What is BT and How Is It Used?

macgregor(6MA)May 30, 2012

I did do a search about this but came up empty-handed.

What is BT (pest control I assume)? I so far have used only insecticidal soap but can definitely use an alternative to keep the little critters at bay.

Thanks for your help -

I had to order it on line , but I live in a small town. It is germ warfare specifically targeted to Cabbage lopers. Works like a charm. I bought the liquid, that you dilute and spray. One dose took them out for the season last year.

I had to use it last winter on my Swiss chard. I use the powder form in a Dustin Mizer.

I just stick it in a canning jar that I've added tiny holes to the lid. It works wonderfully well! I just wished it worked on the baby grasshoppers now eating my swiss chard! :)
