A biological insecticide containing the naturally occurring microorganism Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies kurstaki (Btk).
The active ingredient in DiPel consists of an optimized blend of four potent Bt protein toxins and a spore. Many other Bt strains lack the volume and balance of Bt toxin proteins that DiPel delivers.
Bt subsp. kurstaki toxins have distinct modes of action unlike any chemical insecticide, providing a perfect tool for insect pest control programs. DiPel has never shown cross-resistance with any chemical insecticide
Active ingredient: 32,000 iu Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies kurstaki strain ABTS-351 per mg
Mode of actions:
When an insect pest ingests the protein crystals on treated leaves, its feeding stops within minutes. The protein crystals are solubilized in the gut of the pest and gut cells are irreparably damaged. Once this damage occurs, Bt spores enter through the gut wall and germinate rapidly in the body cavity causing blood poisoning. The larvae then die in 1-3 days.
