Targets garden troublemakers
but leaves their natural enemies alone
Only from gardens alive!
Once in a great while, a new product comes along that
truly breaks the mold. Bulls-Eye Bioinsecticide is one
of those rare break-through products. A member of a
totally new class of pest control, naturally-derived
Bulls-Eye achieves results like nothing else now available
to organic gardeners:
New Biological Control
a broad spectrum of insect pests. Bulls-Eye is
highly effective against many types of leaf-eating
caterpillars, as well as leafminers, thrips, Colorado
potato beetles and even fire ants. Use it on garden
crops, fruits, lawn grass and ornamentals.
damage almost immediately. Bulls-Eye works faster
than most other natural products, stopping damage
of targeted insects in little more than an hour.

zeroes in on specific insect pests without affecting
lady beetles, lacewings and other helpful garden bugs.
little goes a long way. Because Bulls-Eye is so
effective, just a small amount of the concentrate
controls pests over a large area. Keeps at least two
years on the shelf, too.
thuringiensis (Bt), Bulls-Eye is a biological control
product--in other words, it's derived from a living
organism. But while Bt is a killed or dormant bacterium,
Bulls-Eye is made by fermenting bacteria (in this case,
Saccharopolyspora spinosa). Scientists have found
that fermentation of this bacterium produces two metabolites
that are highly toxic to a wide range of insect pests.
Bulls-Eye contains both of these metabolites, making
it a particularly potent bioinsecticide--one that controls
many more pests that Bt does.
has a unique mode of action, too. When insect pests
eat, or simply come in contact with, plants sprayed
with Bulls-Eye, they stop feeding almost immediately.
Bulls-Eye attacks the insects' nervous systems, causing
paralysis in about one hour. (Although pests may hang
around the plant for a day or so, they cause no more
damage.) Any new pests that arrive on the scene over
the next week or two will suffer the same fate! Meanwhile,
natural enemies--such as lady beetles, lacewings, minute
pirate bugs and big-eyed bugs--all remain to defend
your garden against pests not targeted by Bulls-Eye.
To use Bulls-Eye
Bioinsecticide, simply mix the liquid concentrate with
water at a rate of 2 ounces (or 4 tablespoons) per gallon
of water. Spray leaf surfaces uniformly, using a handheld
or backpack sprayer. Most crops can be harvested the
day after using Bulls-Eye. If insect problems reoccur,
reapply in 1-2 weeks. Bulls-Eye breaks down in sunlight
and does not persist in the soil.

occurs during long-term storage, mix the product thoroughly
