PureAg Biologic Army
PureAg Biologic Army is a uniquecombination of predatory bacteria andparasitic fungi. Bacillus thuringiensisis anatural occurring, soil-borne bacteria used for natural insect control. It consists of a spore, which gives it persistence, and a proteincrystal within the spore, which is toxic. When the bacteria is consumed by certain insects, the toxic crystal is released in the insects highly alkaline gut, blocking the system which protects the pest’s digestive system. The stomach is penetrated, and the insect dies by poisoning from the stomach contents and the spores themselves. This same mechanism makes BT harmless to birds, fish andmammals whose acidic gut conditionsnegate the bacteria’s effect.
