DiPel® PRO DF is a biological insecticide containing the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis or Bt. It is
used specifically for control of caterpillars which are the worm like larvae of butterflies and moths.
After ingesting a lethal dose, larvae stop feeding within the hour, and will die within several hours.
It is best used when the larvae are young, actively feeding but before the plants are damaged.
Approved for Organic Growers: An OMRI listed dry, flowable formulation. Dust-free. Contains 54%,
32,000 I.U./mg of Bacillus thuringiensis v kurstaki and 46% inerts. Dry flowable granules dissolve
readily in water. Label also includes European corn borer.
|DiPel® PRO DF
DiPel® PRO DF Bt insecticide is registered to control most caterpillar insects on fruits, citrus,
tropical fruits, vegetables, grains, bulbs, flowers, herbs, turf, ornamental trees and shrubs. Pests
controlled include: loopers, budworms, bagworms, armyworms, webworms, tomato hornworm,
cutworms, cabbageworms, leafroller, and over 30 other pests. Because of the bacteria's
characteristics, it has no or very low impact on non-target organisms: humans, beneficial insects,
birds, fish, and wildlife are not affected by it. DiPel® Pro DF has an REI of 4 hours, and can be
used on the day of harvest.
Rate & Combinations:
1/2 - 2 teaspoons per gallon of water (1/4 - 1 lb. per acre in 100 gallons water). Thorough spray
coverage is needed because the insect pest must consume this material. Repeat applications
may be necessary on 3 to 14 day intervals. Spreader stickers can be added to improve
weather-fastness of the spray.
