"I use Dipel and the cost of the fuel to drive to the local supplier a few miles away is almost the same cost. I wouldn't mess with making your own unless you wanted to get your own strain going and start a new business selling it.;)"
"I suppose that if you took infected caterpillars, put them in a blender with water and mix, you might get something that would work. On the other hand, many of my customers keep bt over the winter and it seems to work the following season. Just…"
This late Winter/Spring I've extended my home garden to a 3,400 ft. greenhouse where I leave the top on and drop the sides during good weather and pull the sides back up during nights with freezes. So far so good! This season I have only used BT for a spray as the tiny moths have gone crazy with our warm Winter weather this year.

Funny about your "snow in a envelope" comment. When I was about 4-5 I heard the adults complain one Summer how hot it was that year so that next Winter when we had a rare cold day I confiscated a empty mayonnaise jar from the…"

Two of the last three years have shown us in dire drought conditions and the future…See More
"Long before I bought my soil mixer, conveyer belt and flat filler I used a small flat bed trailer with solid bottom to mix soil componants with a huge aluminum shovel. Then as time went on I used a PTO driven tiller on the back of a tractor on…"
"I have used the light horticultural oil sprays in the past and they work well. These are not the "dormant oil sprays" that can be used only certain times of the year. These can be used any time with proper precautions."
"Thanks Eric. The second web page you listed had exactly what I needed. I know my SS meter is working ok but I am leary of what my injector is metering out at this time and will check it out later on this morning. As usual you are a treasure trove of…"
