Here's a pretty good explanation of BT. http://www.vegetablegardener.com/item/5344/bacillus-thuringiensis-a-natural-and-safe-microbial-pesticide

It looks like an army worm and BT will kill it. Here's pictures of army worms so you can identify it.

You can find the liquid version of BT sold in most places named "Thuricide". It is concidered organic and is safe for the 'good critters'. It can be used up to the day before harvest. It stops the digestive system of most all catepillar critters. It does NOT KILL on contact just stops the bugs from eating they and all the eggs take one bite and that is that.
