Industry leading organic protection for your crops

DiPel DF contains the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis v. kurstaki or Btk. It is a dry, flowable formulation which is dust-free. DiPel DF is registered to control most Lepidopteran (caterpillar) insects on fruits, citrus, tropical fruits, vegetables, grains, bulbs, flowers, herbs, turf, ornamental trees and shrubs. After ingesting a lethal dose, larvae stop feeding within the hour and will die within several hours to 3 days. It is best used when the larvae are actively feeding but before the plants are damaged. Contains 54%, 32,000 I.U. /mg of Bacillus thuringiensis v kurstaki and 46% inert ingredients.

Effective against a wide variety of worms and caterpillar larvae including tent caterpillars, inch worms, gypsy moth larvae, tomato hornworm, cabbageworm, corn earworm, European corn borer, oak worm, webworm, codling moths and more.

Use & Instructions

Application Rate: Use ¼ -2 lbs. per acre depending on the pest being controlled and crop being sprayed. Follow product label instructions for crop and pest specific mix rates.

Larvae must eat deposits of DiPel DF to be affected. For best results, apply when larvae are in the first instar stages. Repeat applications every 3-14 days depending on plant growth rate, moth activity and rainfall after application. For best results, use at least 20 gallons of water per acre for ground applications. Use 3 gallons of water per acre for aerial applications, except in arid areas where 5-10 gallons should be used. Add a spreader-sticker approved for use on growing and harvested crops when using on hard-to-wet crops like cabbage or to improve spray efficacy in poor weather conditions.
