Safer® Caterpillar Killer utilizes dipel® (bacillus thuringiensis var. Kurstaki) which, once ingested by the wayward caterpillar or worm, kills them within a few days. This insect killer is the most economical and convenient natural pest control solution to caterpillars and worms on the market!
After consuming, caterpillars stop eating and die within a few days. Use in late afternoon or on cloudy days since the BT breaks down in sunlight. Controls tent caterpillars, gypsy moths, cabbage loopers, tomato horn worms, and more. For trees, shrubs and vegetables.
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. This caterpillar killer will keep your lawn and organic garden, free from caterpillars all year long.
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.
Apply Safer® Brand Caterpillar Killer 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 presence 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
