This is specifically for caterpillars and has to be eaten. You probably want spinosad if you're looking for an organic aphid solution.

Answer

Thank you for your question. Yes, thuricide is a bacteria that must be consumed by the worm or caterpillar and disrupts the digestive system. It is not toxic to bees, but should not be applied while bees are present. Spray only when bees are not in the area.

Will this kill ASP catepillars?

Asked by mb October 30, 2018
4
Answers

Yes -- this product is designed to kill all types of caterpillars as it is a fungus that they ingest which affects there ability to process their food and kills them. Since this is ingested I would assume that it will kill the ASP caterpillars, but you need to make sure that you spray your plants well covering both the tops and especially the bottoms of the leaves of the plant. I would also recommend putting it on your plants about every 30 days throughout the summer to ensure that you have good coverage and the fungus has not been affected by the weather. I try to spray in the early morning or evening when there is little to no wind which will effect your coverage and spraying of the product. Hope this answers your questions.

This product is a fungus that the caterpillars ingest so you need to spray the entire plant trying to focus on the leaves (top and bottom sides) as this is where the insets lay their eggs and where the caterpillars start their growth. You want to retreat the plants if you have a lot of rain and I retreat them every 30 days regardless of the weather as I want to ensure that I have a good amount of the product on the leaves at all times. The only real issue that I have seen is making sure that you spray the product when there is no wind otherwise you are not sure about the amount of coverage you are getting. I find spraying either at dusk or early in the morning is the best time as this is when there is little to no wind, but it is always a bit windy here in the summer so I have to find the best times to spray.
