Monterey. B.t. RTU
By Carol in Groveland fl on 08/30/2015
We had tried many products to kill the caterpillars on our bougainvillea but to no avail. This product worked beautifully. It killed all the caterpillars the first time we used it. We give it a five star.

QCan Monterey B.t. RTU be used on my Meyer Lemon Tree for worm/caterpillar infestation?
A Monterey B.t. RTU is not labeled for citrus fruit, including lemons. We would recommend using Natural Guard Spinosad Landscape and Garden Insecticide instead. It is labeled for use on lemons and will kill caterpillars on the tree. One bottle will treat approximately 5300 square feet.
