Got Caterpillars?
Well, you’re not alone. They are seemingly popping up everywhere. Of course, it’s that time of year.
They’re on citrus, sophora, grapes and much more.
But if you want to get them before they get to your trees and other plants, get those leaf-eating boogers – some kind of look like them, too (sorry, I had to go there) – with some Bt, a biological – or organic – control of those pests.
Bt? That’s short for Bacillus thuringiensi, a bacteria that affects the guts of the critter. And it’s good for a wide range of caterpillar. Just follow the directions and spray on the plant. No direct contact is needed on the caterpillar. Instead, spray and the little thing will do the rest, eating up the pesticide and give itself a deadly stomachache.
