Bux Revive is a biological insecticide on the basis of Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. Kurstaki,

Dosage: Contents: 5 sachets of 3 grams each, sufficient total for 150m2 of Boxwood


Dissolve 1 sachet (3 grams) of Bux Revive in 3 litres of water, this mixture is sufficient for the treatment of 30m2 Boxwood.

For the most effective results our strategy is to apply to the surrounding soil & lower areas of the Box Tree in the middle of March or if the temperature is on average over 15° C. Further applications of Bux Revive should take place by weekly to be proactive against the Box Tree Caterpillar. Only apply in the periods of the day when the Box Tree is not under direct sunlight to avid any leaf scorching. Within a few hours after treatment, the caterpillars will stop their feeding. After 3-5 days they will die and fall off the plant.

The caterpillars eat the leaves that have been treated with Bux Revive. Via enzymatic degradation in the stomach of the caterpillar, the protein crystals of Bacillus thuringiensis are broken down into toxins. These toxins bind to and penetrate receptors on the intestinal wall. The caterpillar is completely affected and eventually dies.

 

Although it can take a few days for the caterpillar to die, the treatment with Bux Revive is very efficient and effective. 1 to 2 hours after the intake of Bux Revive the caterpillar stops eating, and so the damage done to the Boxwood is stopped as well. Please note: the caterpillars will only be affected after they ingest the treated leaves. Sometimes the caterpillars do not start feeding immediately, so they will not be affected but also cause no damage yet.

Bux Revive is a biological insecticide that is not harmful to people or the environment. The natural enemies of the caterpillar, such as parasitic wasps, flies, bees and mites, are not affected by the product either.

 

Apply at a temperature of 15° C or above. For the most effective results our strategy is to apply to the surrounding soil & lower areas of the Box Tree in the middle of March or if the temperature is on average over 15° C. Further applications continue in from April onwards. Over the past years there has been typically 3-4 infestations per year, however with the rising temperatures the number of life cycles will increase.
