    B.T. Pesticide

    I was wondering if anyone had ever used B.T. on sarracenia before. I would like to kill the caterpillars and aphids this year, but not the bees. Does anyone know if this works on sarracenia or harms them in any way? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    For those of you who don't know what B.T. is here is a link

    Yeah, last year catepillars ate about a third of my sarr flower buds.

    After I put Bt on them, no more catepillars showed up.

    Bt works like a charm! No side affects of any kind.

    I use "Mosquito dunks" (BT) in my water trays to kill skeeter larvae.
