Organic Caterpillar BioControl - The active ingredient in this product is Btk (Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki) which is a naturally occurring soil bacterium. When ingested by the larvae of insects (caterpillars) it is activated in the caterpillar's alkaline gut where it produces a toxin that is lethal to the caterpillar. In the acid guts of other animals it is destroyed and is totally harmless. Btk is both safe, with no withholding period on crops, and highly effective.
