Re: Fwd: [PW] PA BLACK FLY PROGRAM-HELP!
Cornell indicates that Bt var israelensis is likely the form used but
suggests that traditional standing water control and weed removal is
more effective. Aerial spraying of Bt is undesirable as for example in
Seattle and Vancouver were children were sprayed in school yards leading
to allergy and wound infection. Joe
Bt variety israelensis is marketed for use against black flies and
mosquitoes, fungus gnats, although unless used on a community-wide
basis, it is probably more effective to eliminate standing water and
control weeds at the edges of ponds.
