Bacillus thuringiensis (B.t.) is now widely used for effective control of the eastern spruce budworm in Canada. Goals of the Applications Research Project at FPMI are to further improve the effectiveness of B.t. for spruce budworm control and to transfer the knowledge and experience gained from work with this species to other defoliating forest insect pests. The research program comprises three major components.
