Terminator BT is a biodynamic product, obtained through a rapid fermentation process and has in its composition organic substances complying with the requirements of Regulation 889/2008, Annexes I and II.
Terminator BT, based on the biological pesticide Bacillus Thuringensis, offers the most effective ecological treatment against caterpillars and beetles.
Terminator BT is an insecticide based on Bacillus Thuringensis – rod-shaped microorganism, sporogen, aerobic, gram positive, ubiquitous.
First used as a biological insecticide 21 years ago, Bacillus thuringiensis is found naturally in a variety of environments, especially in soil and leaves. It is lethal to hundreds of thousands of disease-carrying insect species, but non-pathogenic to humans, birds, and animals.
It was found that the different strains of Bacillus thuringiensis show a certain specificity for caterpillars of the order Lepidoptera, respectively for flies and beetles of the orders Diptera and Coleoptera.
Specific mode of action: after ingestion of Bacillus Thuringensis crystals, a chain of biochemical reactions (biochemical sequences) occurs in the intestines of insects, which depend on the specific binding of toxins to some molecules (receptors) in the wall of the insect’s digestive tract. These toxin receptors are only found in the intestinal wall of insects.
