Identification card icon Identification

Bioprotec PLUS is a foliar bio-insecticide that kills caterpillars containing a strain of Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki. Once ingested by the pest insect, this bacteria causes paralysis in the mouth parts and the digestive tract that then creates a general infection (sepsis). Once infected, the caterpillar stops feeding within a few hours and death occurs after 2 to 5 days.

It is essential to make a foliar application that will ensure complete coverage of the foliage on which the caterpillars feed, this will give optimal results. Generally, treatment is done after the eggs hatch, when the young larvae begin to feed actively.

Watch out for rain which can wash the product off the foliage and greatly reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. Make sure you have 6 hours of rain free weather after foliar application to avoid this problem.
