The Safer Brand Garden Dust pest control product is very effective in killing caterpillars and worms, including corn earworm, bollworm, armyworm, diamondback moth, green cloverworm, hornworms, loopers, melonworm, pickleworm, tomato fruitworm, tobacco budworm, salt marsh caterpillar, mimosa webworm and imported cabbageworm. The Safer® Brand Garden Dust utilizes bacillus thuringiensis (var. kurstaki) which, once ingested by the wayward pest, kills them within a few days. It is recommended that this product be applied late in the afternoon or on cloudy days since B.T. breaks down in the sunlight. When the B.T. is ingested by the worm, it works as a gut rot poison that makes the worm stop feeding. The caterpillar or worm will stop feeding immediately and die within days of malnutrition. Carefully read and follow all directions on the product's label. B.T. is very specific and only works on caterpillars and leaf feeding worms. It will not harm beneficial insects, children, pets or wildlife. It is recommended with any pesticide to test plants for sensitivity to the product. Spray a small section of the plant in an inconspicuous area and wait 24 hours before full coverage. Application Rates: apply Safer® Brand Garden Dust when pests are first noticed and repeat every 7-10 days or as necessary. Caterpillar egg hatch can occur over an extended period of time. Monitor treated areas for the presence of newly hatched pests and retreat if necessary. Thorough leaf coverage is necessary for effective control. After ingesting a treated portion of the leaf, caterpillars stop feeding in a few hours and death occurs in a few days. Apply at a rate of 2-3 ounces per 50 feet of row planting. see more...

have used this product for years, it's safe to use and is highly effective. First time I used the dust, the liquid concentrate is easier to apply, dust did not come out evenly. I did get coverage and have to more chewed up leave!

I used this product on my petunias. The flowers were being eaten by insects I believe were moth caterpillars. Within several days of initial application all damage stopped. Two weeks later i noticed some slight damage and a light application of the dust took care of that. Product works great would buy again
