TOPBUXUS XenTari is a biological insecticide based on the Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. Aizawai. The product is to be sprayed on the leaves of the Boxwood. TOPBUXUS XenTari works by ingestion: when the caterpillar eats the sprayed leaves, the toxic proteins disrupt the insect gut causing cessation of feeding within minutes and thus prevent further damage of the Boxwood. Death of the caterpillar occurs within 1 to 3 days. TOPBUXUS XenTari is safe to beneficial insects. Bee-friendly!

Expected availability for the use in private gardens: end 2016
