Dipel PRO DF is labeled for use on Turf & Ornamentals and Dipel DF is labeled for use in Crop Production, but they both contain the same bacillus in the same amount.
DiPel PRO DF is an OMRI Listed biological insecticide for control of caterpillars and moths. It uses the Bacillus thuringiensis v. kurstaki bacteria or Btk to kill caterpillars and borers feeding on crops, preventing further damage. Use DiPel PRO DF to control most Lepidopteran (caterpillar) insects including armyworms, bagworms, budworms, loopers, webworms and various other species of caterpillars.
It is formulated as a dust-free dry, flowable powder for use on fruits, citrus, vegetables, grains, bulbs, flowers, herbs, turf, ornamental trees and shrubs. Once applied, the pest insect ingests some of the Btk bacteria, which produces toxins once in the caterpillar's digestive system. Feeding generally stops within hours of ingestion; however, it can take up to a few days for the target pest to die depending on the pest and level of exposure. DiPel PRO DF is best used when the larvae are actively feeding but before the plants show extensive damage.
Btk is highly pest-specific and has little to no impact on non-target organisms; people, beneficial insects, birds, fish and wildlife are not affected by it. DiPel PRO DF has a 4-hour re-entry interval and 0-day pre-harvest interval.
