Spares Beneficial Organisms
When used as directed, Safer Brand Caterpillar Killer has no effect on birds, earthworms or beneficial insects like honeybees and ladybugs.
Kill Caterpillars and Leaf-Feeding Worms with a Powerful, Naturally-Derived Formula
Safer Brand Caterpillar Killer uses a naturally-occurring bacterium to effectively kill caterpillar-stage insects and leaf-feeding worms that wreak havoc on your vegetation. Simply mix and spray the solution onto trees, shrubs and vegetables for the ultimate protection against these harmful organisms. OMRI listed and approved for organic gardening, Safer Brand Caterpillar Killer can be applied to edible plants up until the day of harvest.
Easy-to-Mix Concentrate Makes over 250 Times the Amount of Solution
This small, economical bottle contains a concentrated solution that yields over 250 times the amount of usable solution. Simply mix a small amount of Safer Brand Caterpillar Concentrate with water as directed, and store the rest for later use. One 16 ounce bottle of concentrate protects over 10,000 square feet of plantings.
Immediately Stops Feeding upon Ingestion
The active ingredient in Safer Brand Caterpillar Killer is a naturally-occurring bacterium called Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki. Caterpillars and certain leaf-feeding worms have a specific pH in their guts that causes the bacterium to release a toxin in their blood as soon as they ingest it. This reaction immediately stops them from feeding, and eventually kills them. In this way, Safer Brand Caterpillar Killer not only protects your plants, but also prevents further infestation by breaking the breeding cycle.
Just Spray to Protect
Apply to the foliage of fruits like melons and tomatoes at the first signs of damage.
Spray onto broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce and more to maintain a caterpillar-free organic vegetable garden.
Cover the leaves of your shade trees to kill off harmful insects and keep your leaves intact.
Protect your ornamental trees and shrubs from webworms, gypsy moth caterpillars and more.
The Benefits of Organic Gardening
Besides preventing the harmful effects caused by synthetic chemicals, organic gardening offers a host of additional economic and health benefits. An organic regimen saves money in the long run by helping to create sustainable gardens that produce greater yields, reducing the need for fertilizers and pest controls over time. Furthermore, increased organic matter in your soil reduces erosion and conserves water, and organic produce is more flavorful and nutrient-dense. Because Safer Brand products are third-party certified for use in organic gardening - both by OMRI and the NOP - you can be sure that the pest control products you choose fit into an organic gardening regimen.

I like this larger, 16 oz. size as I have a large garden and use this a lot during fruiting season. Be careful where you store
it, as too much heat exposure will ruin it.
