Dipel DF (BT) Application

Post  jjocsak on 9/2/2013, 8:53 am

I have a 2 liter sprayer and was wondering the preferred way to use this when applying BT.
The package say anywhere from 1/2 ts to 4 tps per gallon but can't find why the big range.
I know some just dust the plants but that would seem difficult to get under the leaves.

Thanks
Jeff

My bottle of BT recommends 2 tbl per gallon and that is what I have been using.

Read and follow all label directions. Since they give a range for use I would go half way.

Liquid, but I have used the powder. I added just a little water to 2 tbls of powder and made a paste. I then added enough water to the paste to get a good liquid, but this still clogged the sprayer, so I strained it though the toe of an old knee hi hose into the gallon of water.
