ABOUT MONTEREY B.T.:
Get rid of those pesky worms and caterpillars! This biopesticide works by introducing bacterial spores and toxins into the body of the insect larvae as it feeds on foliage. These toxins quickly disrupt, and soon completely stop, normal digestive functions of the pest insect. For best results, use at the beginning of the pest's lifecycle (1st & 2nd instars).
