Mexacarbate and Bacillus thuringiensis for control of pine butterfly infestations: Bitterroot National Forest, Montana, By. Abstract. Aerial application of mexacarbate and Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner\ud was tested against pine butterfly, Neophasia menapia (F. and F.). These\ud were applied to acre plots on the Bitterroot. Bacillus thuringiensis (Berliner) is a soil bacterium that produces a diversity of Cry proteins that are selectively toxic against a wide variety of insect pests. Synthetic cry genes from B. thuringiensis, modified for plant-preferred codon usage, have been introduced in a number of major crops (referred to as Bt crops) such as maize, cotton, and potato to make them insect resistant (28).Cited by: Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) is the most widely recognized and best understood of the microbial insect control products currently available. Many different strains, representing at least 30 sub-species, are now recognized on the basis of their surface flagellar antigens and insecticidal by: 1.

Bacillus thuringiensis is a major microbial insecticide and a source of genes encoding several proteins toxic to insects. In this paper the authors give a brief summary ofBacillus thuringiensis used on the integrated pest management in forestry.

Artificial control. Efforts to control the pine processionary have included biological control using Bacillus thuringiensis, which is effective on eggs and first- or second-stage caterpillars (in September or October), or insecticides such as diflubenzuron, an insect growth regulator Family: Thaumetopoeidae.

Pine butterfly. Gypsy moth; Note: kills caterpillars which produce pretty butterflies as well. Look for products which name Bacillus thuringiensis in the active ingredient list. Kills caterpillars, which are the larval stage of moths and butterflies. Kills leaf eating caterpillars, but is not effective against caterpillars that burrow inside plant tissue such as apple worms or borers. DiPel is the leading biological insecticide on the market today. Registered for use on a variety of ornamentals, DiPel PRO DF delivers outstanding control of more than 30 species of insects, including tent caterpillar and various bagworms, looper, tobacco budworms and armyworms/5(44).
