Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is an organic pesticide effective against various indoor insect pests like caterpillars, flies, beetles, and moths. This makes it an excellent option for protecting indoor plants. Bt powder harms insects upon contact. It does not, however, represent a hazard to humans, other animals, or birds. Additionally, the vast majority of beneficial insects are unaffected when they ingest it. Organic farmers commonly utilize it as a natural alternative to pesticides. Novobac produces bacillus thuringiensis products available for purchase, offering effective biological pest control options.

Bacillus thuringiensis produces toxins called crystal proteins that specifically target certain insect species, including Orthoptera, Coleoptera, Diptera, and Hymenoptera, with a focus on Lepidoptera.
The two main toxoids produced by BTK and BTA are exotoxin and endotoxin (also known as parasporal crystals). The primary poisons are parasporal crystals.
Compared to chemical insecticides, the best indoor plant insecticide acts with high specificity, targeting specific groups of insects exclusively. After ingestion, the proteins from Bt disrupt the digestive system of the targeted insects, ultimately causing their demise.
Insects that have simple digestive systems may undergo quick destruction of their intestinal walls. This leads to the insects stopping their feeding and experiencing paralysis within a few minutes. This allows the vegetative bacteria cells to readily invade and pierce the intestinal wall. Pests finally succumb to hunger and infection, hemolymph.
The effects of BT powder take time to manifest and might begin working up to 2 days after ingestion. Therefore, it’s advisable to apply BT powder a few days ahead of traditional chemical agents. The impact is more noticeable when the moth is in its early stages of development.
