Label / MSDS

For CA: Technical Info

Dipel DF is a biological insecticide containing the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis or Bt. It is used specifically for 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 to 3 days. Because of its specificity it has no or very low impact on non-target organisms. It is best used when the larvae are young, actively feeding but before the plants are damaged.

Classification: Organic / ingestion

Common Rose Pests Controlled:
Tent Caterpillar, Orange Tortrix Caterpillar, Omnivorous Looper, Io Moth, Oblique Banded Leafroller, Fruit Tree Leafroller & Omnivorous Leafroller.

Other Uses:
Dipel DF is registered to control most caterpillar insects on fruits, citrus, tropical fruits, vegetables, grains, bulbs, flowers, herbs, turf, ornamental trees and shrubs.

Rate & Combinations:
2 to 4 teaspoons per gallon of 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 such as Hyper-Active can be added to improve weather-fastness of the spray.

Always refer to actual product label for specific rates, instructions, and cautions.
