Authors: Molloy, D., Jamnback, H.
Journal, Volume, Year: Journal of Economic Entomology, volume 74:314-318, 1981
Summary

The effectiveness of Bt israelensis against black fly larvae and effects on nontarget stream insects was determined. Bt israelensis was effective in reducing black fly larvae, but caused no adverse effects on mayfly, caddisfly, stonefly, chironomid, or elmid populations.

Comments

Helpful in understanding the broad picture of Bt nontarget effects.
