Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)

What is Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)?

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is an insecticide with unusual properties that make it useful for pest control in certain situations. Bt is a naturally occurring bacterium common in soils throughout the world. Several strains can infect and kill insects. Because of this property, Bt has been developed for insect control. At present, Bt is the only "microbial insecticide" in widespread use.

Bt insecticides are most commonly used against some leaf- and needle-feeding caterpillars. Recently, strains have been produced that affect certain fly larvae, such as mosquitoes, and larvae of leaf beetles.

In recent years, there has been tremendous renewed interest in Bt. several new products have been developed, largely because of the safety associated with Bt-based insecticides.
