OHP’s New Bio Insecticide

Chris Beytes

OHP announced the addition of Thuricide N/G Biological Insecticide to its portfolio of biosolutions. Thuricide N/G is derived from the naturally occurring bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies kurstaki strain SA-12. It’s highly effective at infecting and controlling lepidopteran and other insect larvae.

After application, the larvae consume the bacteria and cryotoxins are released into the stomach, causing the larvae to stop feeding within a few hours and consequently death occurs within a few days. Thuricide N/G is approved for organic production, OMRI-listed, carries a four-hour Restricted Entry Interval (REI) and a Caution signal word.
